These are the formations one sees across the canyon as you round the bend near the 7 cataracts pullout. They are a bit of a pain to access so you will never have a crowd. The towers are tall and have a lot of exposure. Good rock with tons of new route potential.

Getting There 

Depending on which tower you visit will determine your approach but you can park at the Windy Point parking lot.

Find your way to the southwest corner of the spire and rap off the west side. Do not rap off the south anchors (Children of the Revolution) or you will be jugging back up to rap the west side. This will be a double rappel to the ground. Go down the gully a little ways (but not to the base) until it is possible to start up the 5.8R slab....[more]   Browse More Classics in Arizona
