Mueller Tower has one ground to summit crack system on the north side of the tower. Start left of the crack system and climb an easy but hard to protect slab until the crack can be reached. Two physical offwidth bulges lead to an easier chimney and the summit.

The rock on this one is a little softer and looser than the other towers in Coal Wash.


Mueller Tower is in a side drainage north of the wash about 2-3 miles past the junction of the north and south Coal Wash roads and just before Mirage Tower briefly comes in to view. It blends in with the cliffs behind it so you really need to keep an eye out for it.

The hike in is easy and takes about 20 minutes.


Double set from .5 to 6 camalot. New style 4 camalots are especially useful.

The anchor is a little shaky - good rock is hard to find up there. We didn't have any luck getting bolts to tighten down well. I'd recommend bringing some half inchers up or adding a drilled angle. We didn't die rapping off so I guess its all right.
