Description

This tower is too beautiful to be named such a boring name, however, near the base of the route is inscribed the words, "This is Eagle Rock." How can I argue with that?

On the south side of the formation, follow the bolt line. This route consists of about 20 bolts that connect 2-3 short sections of C1 and C2 climbing.

The route follows cracks until about halfway, then C0 bolts up under the roof, around to the right, and up the final headwall.

This is the kind of tower that makes even non-climbers want to climb it.

Beautiful tower in a beautiful setting, however, from the summit I was able to see semi-trucks passing by on I-70.

Location

Drive on the 4WD road past Swasey's Cabin. You will descend into a canyon, at the bottom, the road will split to the right and to the left. Take the left track and 1/4 of a mile from the turn you will see the tower on the right.

Protection

Blue aliens to a 4 camalot. At the base of the route, you can see the sizes you should need. A couple of wires or tie-offs for two studs. 20-ish quickdraws.
