Description 

The area furthest to the right as you face the tower. Look forward to sun in the morning in winter and fall, and it goes into the shade fairly early in the summer!

Routes are listed from the left, starting at the top of approach trail, going uphill to the right.

Getting There 

Find the tower, and go to the right side of it.
