Description

These are granite towers with decent rock.

Getting There

Eddy out at the beach between Big Drop and Staircase Rapids in Browns Canyon National Monument. Walk downstream along the train tracks for 100 yards, and then turn left 1 mile north east up a wash. Three prominent towers rise at the end of the valley.

This area has an unbelievable amount of good quality rock that I've heard is geologically rare and relatively untouched by climbers. Anyone that has access to a boat and wants adventure should go explore this place! We only spent 2 days here, and it wasn't enough. Be ready for a 1-2 hour approach from the river depending on which formation you're headed for. Lots of bushwhacking and boulder scrambling. Lots of potential! Aug 29, 2016
