DescriptionSome really good lines go up the centerpiece of the Narrows. With it's signature diving board formation, it is easy to recognize.
Access is always an issue here. Details
Please do not litter and observe all regulations. We had to fight to regain access at one time, and we don't want to lose the privilege again. Local ethics and refuge regulations are that no bolting is permitted unless expressly authorized by the park. Leave the hammer and nails at home, no fixed gear please. Everything will go clean.
Getting ThereWhile there is a direct trail that goes up from the creek to the base of Leaning Tower, it is small, overgrown, and steep. The best way to get to Leaning Tower is to take the well traveled trail up from the creek towards Zoo Wall. When you get to the fork in the trail, go left. The right fork takes you to Zoo Wall and the left fork will take you directly to Leaning Tower.
Note that volunteers are doing this work, and it can take time and not always be perfect...
