Description

A huge leaning chunk of rock about a mile back in the canyon. A big crack splits the overhanging south face of this tower.

Getting There

Simply follow the trail from the Las Conchas parking area for about 20 minutes downstream. After roughly 15 minutes and crossing the third wooden bridge over the river, you'll come to The Sponge on the north (right) side of the creek. Keep hiking for a few more minutes and the Leaning Tower will be the brilliant and obvious wall on your right.
