Description 

The lowest & rightmost of the Mayfield Canyon Towers, Bedrock Tower hosts a few 2-4 pitch routes on fantastic & featured rock. One could easily combine a route on Bedrock Tower with another 3-pitch route on the Tower of Babel, the wall located immediately behind Bedrock Tower, which is separated from Bedrock by a large 3rd class ledge system.

Getting There 

Mayfield Canyon Towers approach. Expect 1.5 hours of steep uphill sand and bushwhacking to the base. Descent off Bedrock Tower is to the left on a 3rd class ledge.
