Description

The Continental Tower's excellent granite cracks, knobs, and chickenheads certainly have room for a few more than the handful of existing routes. Bring a pioneering spirit.
As explained in the Little Sandy Valley overview, chances of running into another climbing party back here are about as good as getting struck by lightning on the towers... possible, but not probable! It's a hump getting back there.
The buttresses predominantly face west. As the name of the range suggests, prepare for wind!
Allow about 40 minutes to an hour approach time from Little Sandy Creek.

Getting There

See the Little Sandy Valley overview for approach beta from the trailhead. It takes between 5 and 6 hours to reach the upper meadows and a suitable bivy spot for the towers.
