Description

The main face faces due west, but there are many aspects to this choss tower. However the one route that was established on it faced west, but only 1/4 of it remains.

The rock quality SEEMED good, but then it cleaved in half on a cold October morning in 1999

Getting There

From Cedar City find HWY 14. Take this up the canyon for about 7 miles. After the double lanes end and the parking for Latency Tower and Bootleg Butte goes by, keep an eye on the left hand side of the road. There is a "suicide jump" that looks like a crazed person could Thelma and Louise themselves into the gorge. Park on the suicide jump.
After parking, literally walk over and slide downhill to the stream. A short uphill walk will bring you to this choss spitting tower (it was still raining softball sized rocks in 2001 when i walked over to it)

Thanks for all the info TP. Your crew's history is rich for sure, fun to hear about all the endevours. I've been eyeing that pillar for some time now and I'm trying to get all the info I can on the previous ascents to get a game plan together, and a partner. Latency is also a top priority, we'll post thoughts after we find out how sandbagged that shit really is ;) Thanks again man your feedback is most appreciated. Jul 31, 2010
Attn: White Harlem Crew. Looking for more information on the old route up the pillar. Specifically: Why did you guys choose the west aspect, did you look at/try any other potential lines? How much of the route was aid/free? How many pitches was the old route? Can you break down beta for each pitch? Did the OW (to the right of the red line on the beta photo) for the first pitch get attempted? Any and all information would be most helpful. Jul 31, 2010
I think I was overlook as one of the driving forces behind the FA of this tower. Aug 13, 2009

I may have done the "last ascent" of this route. I soloed the route about 2 months before the tower cleaved in half. RIP the Pillar. I do believe this is my only "last ascent". Does this mean that there is now an unclimbed tower left over? Jul 15, 2009
