Description

High on the skyline looking down on the Tioga Road (US 120) are the three Warren Towers. The most conspicuous North Warren Tower was climbed as early as 1930 (presumably from behind), but the record in the register has become illegible. The Middle and South Warren Towers do have cairns on top. I would think there are also some new routes to do on them if you don't mind a long approach march.

Getting There

Hike up toward the Warren Towers from the pullout on US 120 below the 'Blue Slide' where Caltrans often parks a bulldozer. This long trudge should take about 2.5 hours. Getting down from the summit of the North Tower involves 2 raps off the back to a touchdown on the talus at the top of the approach gully. Descend back the way you walked up.
