Description

Start on the north side of the tower, pass one bolt and a few gear placements to reach the summit.

Location

This is the little tower sitting above the weigh station (on the west side of the canyon in Price Canyon). The most straight forward way to get to the tower is by heading up a gully just down canyon from the weigh station. There is some easy 5th class on the approach so tread lightly or set up a belay.

To descend, either take the same way down, or continue to the top of the mountain and walk along the ridge for a long way until you can find a break in the cliff or until the cliff disappears (the latter is the most likely option). Once you find a way to the bottom of the canyon, follow the "trail" back to the highway and back to the car.

Protection

A small rack of cams up to a #3 and a long quickdraw. A #3 is not needed, however it might make a nice placement for the follower so they don't swing too far if they were to fall.
