Description

There are a few towers in a line here that feature some straightforward to extremely exciting adventures.

Kissing Couple is the best known of the bunch.

Getting There

To access these, you drive past Monument Canyon Trail, to the very back of the valley. Look for a tunnel just below the road. This is where the approach trail starts. You start by walking down a trail built in 1910 by John Otto. This trail drops steeply into the canyon for about 800 feet, and then it walks around the edge of the canyon until the Kissing Couple formation can be seen. So, you walk around to the base of which tower you wish to ascend.
