Description

The west side of Nightmare Tower is split by several vertical crack systems and appears more broken than the south side. Wrenched (5.9) and Tri-tip and Corn (5.10a) are found on this side of the formation and worth a visit.

Getting There

Approach as for Sleepy Bear Tower but skirt that formation on the left side of the west face and head slightly up and right through some rocks and Manzanita bushes.
