Some really good lines go up the centerpiece of the Narrows. With it's signature diving board formation, it is easy to recognize.

Getting There 

While there is a direct trail that goes up from the creek to the base of Leaning Tower, it is small, overgrown, and steep. The best way to get to Leaning Tower is to take the well traveled trail up from the creek towards Zoo Wall. When you get to the fork in the trail, go left. The right fork takes you to Zoo Wall and the left fork will take you directly to Leaning Tower.

Note that volunteers are doing this work, and it can take time and not always be perfect...
