Description

5.8-5.11 slab. Well protected sport.

You can climb everything here with a 60 m rope and 14 quick draws.

Getting There

after main trail veers right (i.e. after trail to Cal Trans wall), the next trail peeling off Left goes to Gun Tower wall. This is a super short trail, connecting you to a crag that's easily visible from the main trail without any uphill hiking. 5.8-11 slab here. Routes start Left of where the trail meets the crag and continue far to the climbers right as the trail scrambles uphill and finally dead ends.
