Description

Overhanging Tower is one of the most striking and intimidating summits in the Cirque. It is also likely the easiest peak to climb. A nice afternoon romp.

Getting There

Scramble (snow in early season, talus late)to the Wolf's Head-Overhanging Tower Col. Assend the Col. (3rd class) to the saddle.
