Similar climbing to the Viewfinder Towers with a slightly different approach to get there.

Just a little ways north of Hanksville. If coming from Hanksville then turn in through a gate on the west side of the highway right after the airport and before you get to the Viewfinder Towers area.

For the San Rafael Swell - South area.
