Perhaps all the towers on Family Butte have seen ascents by routes dating from the early 1990s. From the summit of our first ascent in November 2012, rap anchors could be seen on some of the various summits. Very little is known of these ascents, only one climb on what is know as the Daughter Tower is described in Cam Burns desert guide. Below will be what we know so far of the climbs on the towers. Anyone with descriptions and other info are invited to add to the site.
Family Butte is on the right of the road that leads to Reds Canyon. This road goes south from exit 131 on I70 - the exit is about 30 miles west of Green River. From the exit, go left under I70 and follow good dirt roads towards Reds Canyon. You will see the obvious towers at about 15 miles. Camping areas can be found in the area. The foot of the towers can be reached from the road in about 20 minutes. Family Butte is marked on maps of the San Rafael Swell.
