A fun tower with a great approach. The Colorado River must be crossed to reach this tower. Barney Rumble Tower is 140 feet high.

Getting There 

Park in a pullout on the River Road near mile marker 4. The tower will be visible accross the river up on a shelf. Float across the river and traverse left until weaknesses through the cliff bands provide a way up to the base of the tower. Some routefinding is involved.
