Looking for some info on a new tower I put a route on in Hunter canyon in the Kane springs area. mountainproject.com/v/hunter-c... There are two other towers in the area we put FA's on but when I got to the top of the third tower there was a small carin and about 30 feet of sun bleached webbing wrapped around part of the top with a knot a little bigger then a softball in it.

Hoping to find out if it has a name or who climbed it first, I didn't see any obvious signs hat it had been climbed while I was looking for a way to get to the top, there is a 15 foot section towards the top that is either super blank or steep without a good crack system. It would be possible to access it from the rim of the canyon that is about a 20-30 foot gap with some trickery. Aaron D White

Well done! Though not likely, I do hope you find the FAist. Roy Suggett

Well done? Maybe... they're bolt ladders. And, it sounds like someone else did one of them before without any fixed gear at all. They look fun though.

Which of the towers had the cairn?

The one with the Carin was on top was the Huntsman tower shown in the photo above. Like I said before I was super surprised when I got up on top to see the carin I need to get back up there and investigate a little closer to see how they might have topped out. Aaron D White

There are some people who do not care to record their ascents, sometimes taking great steps to erase any signs of their passage. josh holmes
