RAPTOR CLOSURES: please be aware of seasonal raptor closures at the Cat Wall and Reservoir Wall. They occur annually from March 31st until August 31st. *Due to the federal hiring freeze in agencies such as the BLM of Monticello, no official closure for 2017 has been issued and the laws which have been put in place in previous years are not being enforced. Please, for the sake of fragile desert ecology, DO NOT CLIMB at stated walls. These raptors return to the same nesting sites every year to raise their nestlings.
Start next to a tree on the North East side of the tower. Climb route of least resistance to the notch and a one bolt one pin anchor.
We climbed up a loose wide corner to a ledge. Then up another corner, cut left to avoid a roof and mantel onto a ledge/ramp that leads to your choice of a chimney or a nice crack. We chose the crack. 120' 5.10
Climb the wide crack on the smaller feature to the climbers right of the notch. Pass two good bolts in route to the shoulder that has a drilled pin on it. Clip the pin then jump the gap to the main tower and start pulling on draws and standing on drilled pins. This pitch might go free and 5.12? The anchor on top consists of three pins in a crack. 120' 5.10, A0
