Description 

Marmot Tower sits high on the hillside just above the Dungeon. While only a few routes exist, it's a beautiful spot and hosts the great beginner route, Maybe the Marmot Ate Your Baby?

Getting There 

Follow the approach for the Dungeon, but keep on hiking up the hill. The Marmot Tower will be very obvious off to the left.
