Description 

The Dark Tower Area is the sub-crag located on the NW end of The Running Scared Wall. It has the second largest cluster of routes as well as the largest range of grades. The quality of rock here varies, and with that being said, its the best at wall. This area faces west and is in the sun for a marjority of the day. Shade can be found in the morning and can also be chased by climbing routes around and behind The Dark Tower.

Getting There 

The Dark Tower is near the furthest north-end of the buttress, if following the main trail, continue along past the School Room for an estimated 500 feet until a steep, wavy tower appears.
