Description

This cool, short tower sits on the South side of the La Luz trail, just above The Fin. So-named for its uncanny resemblance to the famed actor, this route is a must do for all comers. A great way to finish off the day after climbing The Thumb, Yataghan, or any of the other big-ticket items in the area.

Getting There

Hike down the La Luz trail from the Crest. 50 feet after passing the Fin ascend the talus on the South side of the canyon for ~100 feet. Enter the trees to the west and bushwhack for 50 feet to the base of the spire. Approach time is around 30 minutes.

Semi permanent gear left on Northwest Corner. Camed out hex nut left about mid way up the corner. bring a hammer and get some free booty, or clip it for a "why not" piece, However, taking friend's word for it that it is permanently stuck, I didn't try to remove it personally. Aug 16, 2015
