This area was first recorded in Eric Bjornstad's Desert Rock III. Four tower climbs instigated by Pete Takeda and Duane Raleigh in 1992/3. These dirt towers of compressed shale with a sandstone cap rock can be seen as one drives passed Palisade on I-70 Interstate. These four towers climbed at that time where mostly quite short and fat. Seven years later from 2000 to 2001 Paul Ross with various partners cleaned up the area climbing nine more towers, some being extremely slim and spectacular for their size. Not great climbing, but they do have an element of risk and make great photos!! Please note the star system on these "things" apply only to this area.Good winter fun.
