Description

This is the tall spaceship looking landform tucked in behind the Palisade overlooking Gateway. It has three distinct summits, two shorter, the center much taller (approximately 350'). There are several lines on the towers.

Getting There

Anyway you look at it, it's a two hour hump to the base. A recon is recomended as there is no trail, and it is quite easy to get lost in washes leading up to the tower.

Honestly, I could care less. Trident is actually a very fitting name. All I know is what I was told when I asked the old guard. I've been around here close to twenty years and have never met anyone who even knew it was there let alone climbed it. I figured Fowler has gotten it but never got any conformation, and I kept forgetting to ask Keith Reynolds and Alan Stevenson about it when they were around. Next time I run into Keith I'll ask what knows. I know they did some routes on the Visor (front prow of the Palisade).
It was in both Stu and Cams notes as Brighams. Who am I to argue with dudes who have thirty more years in the desert than me. Mar 15, 2016
This tower has long been known to locals as the Trident and should remain as such to the climbing community don't ya think?
Original line is on the opposite side of the tower and was most likely a Banditos route judging by the stamped hangers saying "NO GUD" and "OH SHIT".
