DescriptionUnknown Skinny Tower is the western skinnier tower of the two towers just north of the San Rafael Knob.
Climb a delicate face to a low angle ramp to an arete to the summit. Really fun face climbing on rock that is better than it looks. Don't fall on the upper arete.
LocationFrom the Moore exit, head south on the Copper Globe Road through Justensen Flats. Keep going straight east when a sign points right to go to Devils Canyon/Copper Globe - I think the road is marked as 283? Go a couple miles past some dead end signs on the most major road. When the road dead ends at a large open area, backtrack a bit and go north on the first dirt road. Follow that to the base of the towers and an excellent campsite.
The road to the dead end open area is moderately challenging 4WD - if it seemed difficult at all park there and hike cross country. The road between there and the towers has a pretty significant crux section. There are excellent campsites all along the road.
