This is the most free-standing spire of the Garden, which actually stands in profile from the right spot on Highway 14a far below. This sighting initially motivated me to recon the area years ago. Unfortunately, it is composed of scabby choss--climb with care.

The route starts on the north face. Steep cranking up a short crack leads to tenuous crimping/pockets past a bolt on a steep slab shield, move left below a flake/overlap and pull a slight bulge into a short crack and a 2nd bolt, finish with a blocky topout. Be careful what you pull on!


One of the most obvious towers in the Garden, as it is one of the easternmost and first encountered on the approach. Refer to the pictures.


2 bolts, (1x)#.3-#1 BD, shuts with webbing, bring more webbing.
