Approach: By boat on Apache Lake, anchor near Friendship Cove and scramble and bushwack your way up to the base of the tower. Watch for rattlesnakes. Approximately 1 hour.

Climb: Climb the crumbling chimney system (95 feet) to reach the top of the tower and the anchors. Watch for loose rock the entire climb! Beautiful summit.

Descent: Rap the route from 3 bolt anchors. Make your way back to the lake.


Apache Lake - near Friendship Cove. You can see the tower from many places on the water.


Singles - .5 to 3 or 4.
3 bolt anchor at top.
