DescriptionTwo climbs exist on this tower, one nice lead, Simply Replaced, and a top-rope problem, Green Snake, leads to the same anchor. The rock is of high quality and the movement on the routes is fun. We just wished that the climbs were much longer!
Descend routes by rappelling from the anchors on top of the tower.
Getting ThereAs there are no trails in this area aside from the main trail into the canyon, there are multiple ways to get to this formation by navigating through the brush, rock, cholla, cactus, and other exciting skin welting natives. We bushwhacked up and left (northeast) from Out of Darkness Slabs. There was evidence that others have done this, however, no distinct trails. Another option we saw may be to connect the formations, climbing from the top of Out of Darkness Slabs, followed by some roped bushwhacking, and up another short slab. A mini-multipitch adventure. Not sure which way would be easiest, considering all the obstacles that exist either way you go.
