Description

This large choss-tower is a good place to visit if you're looking for an uncrowded scrambling venue. The rock quality is poor, but the views from the summit are incredible and make it worthwhile.
Some crags in this area are closed 1 February to 31 July: Details

Getting There

Follow the Amphitheater trail to the junction with the Amphitheater Express trail. The tower is just about visible through the trees ahead. At this point, bushwhack south uphill through trees and talus to reach the slender, chosspile tower. Approach time is 15 minutes.
