Description

Indigo Tower is the stubby 20-40ft tower between New Wave Wall and Wind Wall. There are presently three routes on the formation. Like the tower itself these routes are overshadowed by the neighboring classic lines.

Getting There

To reach the Indigo Tower park at the first pullout before the Windy Point parking lot. This pullout is on the south (downhill traffic) side of the road. Hike west down a gully to Hunchback Pinnacle; turn left and hike east past Wind Wall. Indigo Tower is the small tower in the horseshoe enclosure. The approach will take less than 5 minutes. Alternatively one can rappel in using the anchors of Threshold on Wind Wall.

Since the tower is located so close to a high traffic tourist stop be on the lookout for hurled rocks and trash. While a rare occurrence I have unfortunately experienced both.
