Description

This formation also lies in Pinnacle Valley and is between Wildflower Wall and Hidden Wall. It is easily seen from the top of The Watchtower. From this vantage it is readily identified by the striking arete and crack system that make up the route "Razor's Edge." This formation is also the home to the route "Hammer Time" (see Schein Guide), and at least a couple other established routes.

Getting There

It can be approached from the top of Watchtower by contouring North just below the limestone bands.... or better continue along the Crest Trail (past the trail that leads down to Watchtower) another quarter mile to a low saddle, then descend gully to top of formation. No distinct trail at this time.
