Description

Past the Oven toward the right side of the Pit is the Sun Tower, a semi-detached formation with a good concentration of moderate routes. All of the climbs here are 5.10 or under. The rock is fairly solid, but broken up by many ledges. Shaded on hot days.

Getting There

Walk along the main trail past the Oven until you reach an obvious tower with bolted routes. R.E.M. is the first route on the left.
