Description

This fine tower has different aspects so chasing sun/shade will always be an option. The best view for the "tower" look is at the base of the Red Monster, this shows you it is detached, from the hardpan its tough to tell.

This tower has it all, a 5.6 scramble up the back, to a 5.12c mixed route up the front, to a classic 5.9 trad route up the north side. When you get to the top don't forget to take your shot of Tequila and thank James Garrett.

Getting There

It depends what route you are climbing, anyway you cut it the walk can't be more than 10 minutes from the car.

I just repeated an excellent mixed (bolts/gear) route on Quartermoon which ascends the far right side (NE corner)for three pitches. It has fixe ring bolts for the anchors. I am not familiar with this route and would love to know its history insofar as FA party, grade given, length, any particulars.
We crossed the chasm above the supposed high point. Then we climbed straight up to a ledge, did not see where it may have gone from there, then traversed left to Lunar Power to ascend to the top.
Good job on the NE corner route, would love to hear more about it!
Thanks Apr 13, 2008
