This is a 300 foot windgate tower on the southwest face of Drinks Canyon.
Drive down river road to the Drinks Canyon Campsite and park. This is about a mile before Big Bend. Work your way on benches up the canyons southwest face (hikers left to the base of the tower. There is a 1 pitch route on the back, which I believe is in Desert Rock III, and a four pitch route up the big southwest arete.
