Description

Across the Paria River and not far (500 meters) from the Dog Gone Tower, Gun-Sight Butte is a local landmark with a "U" shaped notch in the middle of this stand alone monolith. The unclimbed Entrada Tower is just east of this formation.

This area is in the Entrada Formation and is therefore sufficiently soft to deserve PG 13 ratings. Sew up your lines and enjoy the beautiful summit views. In the distance note the stunning Powell Point. Behind this bi-state landmark reference is the alpine crag known as the Jungle at 10,400 feet. Jungle lines are on igneous rock, whereas the routes here are all on suspect sedimentary SANDstone.

Getting There

This area is a conglomerate of different types of ownership. The climbing appears to be on state lands but the approach is a mix of private, town, and state lands. It is an easy and casual approach, but contact me for the most respectful and easy drive/parking.
