A squat flat-top tower neighboring the Whistlepig. It's uphill face presents the only obvious weakness, as the other aspects are all vertical and largely devoid of features. There is a striking thin crack splitting the downhill face which could be a potential aid line. About 50' on the shorter uphill face and 60'-75' on the other sides. Again, lousy climbing but a cool little tower. Also named after the local marmots.

Make a few fun moves on good square-cut edges for about 12' and then ramble up a few ledges and pull a final crux headwall on suspect rock.
