Description 

These are a group of three/four DIRTY towers that are bisected by I-70 on the western edge of the swell. They are within rock toss distance from the interstate.

These formations are nothing to write home about, but due to their close proximity to the interstate, if you are adventure minded, they give the dirt climber something to do.

Getting There 

Traveling on I-70, go to the Lone Tree exit at mile marker 108. The towers are a few hundred meters east of the exit on both sides of the interstate. There are 2 1/2 on the south side and 1 on the north side.

Trump Tower is a dumpy little tower that looks like an orange turkey. It inexplicably became the subject of attention in 2016, but should fade back into obscurity after early November. The rock has so little integrity that it is mostly just dirt, and crumbles under the slightest pressure.Start in a dirty, dirty groove, pop a couple of tic tacs, and then grope your way past three bolts before heaving onto the summit. Be careful - the rock is probably the worst i've ever cli...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
