Obvious 160' pillar leaning against the left (south) wall of the canyon right before the Tower of Bubdom. There are several new routes that are sure to please the day cragger looking for some wide fun. The routes all have a "unique" personality. The routes are meant to be enjoyed and are ready for an enjoyable day out in this beautiful canyon. Get at it and have fun!

Getting There 

Hike in day canyon past Raptor and the first fork in the canyon. You'll see the Tower of Bubdom up on your left. It looks like a big fist. Walk till you are near it and look for a cairn on your left.

Please please be careful of our sensitive desert habitat and do not make your own paths.
