|After getting denied in Echo Canyon proper due to a closure for wintering wildlife, we checked this place out. Thanks for the hardware James. Unfortunately this place will hold little interest for free climbers as it is really loose. Time will not be kind to these towers. The best holds are the bolts.|

This is a pretty cool climb considering it is a sweet tower, but I honestly cannot condone anyone going up this thing if they value their lives. The bolts are... homemade??? They honestly look like they couldn't hold a fall. Well guess what? We found out they can. I ended up pulling out a rock the size of a melon while clipping the second to last "bolt" and took the scariest fall of my life. It was cool once I was up but its not worth the danger it puts you in in my opinion.
I think if someone were to get some real bolts into the witch it would be fine, even with the rock fall.
