Description

This tower faces west. It is a big time burn in the afternoon.

Per Thomas Cuthbert: this is a secluded crag right next to the train tracks overlooking the river with good rock. It has mainly sport routes.

Eds. This is a combination of submissions done to reduce confusion of redundant entries.

Getting There

Take CR 371 through the first set of tunnels, down along the railroad tracks, left of a small parking area.

Per Thomas Cuthbert: turn off US Highway 24 onto E. Main St., turn left onto N. Colorado Ave. which turns into County Road 371, continue on County Road 371 until you get to the tunnel, but don't go through the tunnel, park just left of the entrance. Head down on foot and walk north along the tracks.
