DescriptionFun little Tower. Start up a chimney between the two towers. Once you get up on the bulge head back until you see a crack/dihedral/off-width/chimney thing to the left and head up. You will be on a large platform in front of the final summit. Build a belay anchor here. After this platform you have about 8 feet of 5.5 climbing to the summit.
LocationHead into Red Canyon. Take the right hand fork that immediately ends in a parking area/road block. Hike in past the wilderness study area signs along a pleasant wash for about 2 miles, (about an hour) to an obvious break in the crappy brown rockbands.
Hike onto the bench and head slightly south to a game track that leads towards the obvious connected towers. Beautiful 5.8 double cracks on the north side. This climb begins between on the west side between the two towers.
Many towers in this area, easy to get lost.
