This tower takes the cake as the loosest of the I-70 Towers. So loose, a groove was worn into the Towers wall by the first ascenders. In an article on this area, Pete Taketa described this tower as a future horrific nightmare. Actually, it is a piece of cake for a Borrowdale climber.
This is located at the west end of the Mt. Garfield formations. See area photo.
Fixed nails, odd bolt, tie-offs required.
