What gear didn't you have? I thought your guest bedroom was designated an official Outfitting Store by local merchants?

You're right about the name Scott.

You don't have a e-copy of that article do you? Would love to read that.
Thanks for stopping by.

No, but it was in Summit, February 1976 issue.

Tower was first climbed in 1966 by E. Dodd, D. Jensen, and B. Pratt. After looking back at the article, it doesn't say that much about the Tower, only a nice photo and some interesting stats. Good luck if you find it online. Not sure where to get it.

Any chance you have a Topozone link for this feature? Does it even show on a quad?

Thanks for visiting Carolyn.

Original (1966 rating) puts it at III 5.6 A3 (with lots of "giant bongs" employed....likely for pro and to calm the nerves of the FA party no doubt ;). Line has been freed by local hardmen (FFA 1970's) at reportedly III 5.11a (...shakey fixed pro and equally shakey belay anchors apparently). According to the author of the guidebook for the area, it can also be aided cleanly now. That's the easiest line on the tower. There are of course more nightmarish lines up to A4 :)

Ooooh, that does sounds tempting -- now if I could just find someone to lead the A3. Yooo hooo... Craig? :^)

But I can't tell where it actually is. Is it near the Monkey Face?

Cool shot, Radek! I've seen this on the maps and been tempted to hike in and check it out. Pretty dramatic!
