Description [Edit]

A catchall area for a few scattered outcrops of weathered Bighorn Dolomite spires accessed via Highway 14a. The areas and climbing are similar in nature to the better known (there's now a Patagonia poster featuring one of the towers) Highway 14 Pinnacles. Unlike the Highway 14 areas, most of the towers found along 14a require a decent approach, often with some bushwhacking. These are loose, often runout, potentially dangerous forays that will only appeal to those who value aesthetic summits over quality climbing. Enjoy!

Getting There [Edit]

From Sheridan, head north on Interstate 90 for 15 miles to US Highway 14—Exit 9. Follow Highway 14 west for 7 miles, passing through Ranchester, to Dayton. From Dayton, follow Highway 14 for 25 miles to Burgess Junction. Turn right (west) onto Highway 14a. Access to the various areas/towers will be listed separately.
