Coming around P3 to the intermediate belay.


The Tower ridge holds two towers. They can be hard to see from the parking area. But you basically look due south once in the side canyon and up. You should be able to spot them.

This is the side canyon of the "hermit shack". When the road ends you walk up a well worn wash and past the shack. Keep to the stream bed and pick your poison on how you are getting up there.

Getting There 

Once you enter the canyon there will be only 2 left hand turns (if driving from Delta). The first one drives up a hill and stops at about 100 yards. The other is a full on side canyon with a road and a nice meadow for camping. You will almost be out of Marjum and on the Painter Springs road when you get here.

Climbing Season
