Yeah, it's a cool tower. Not sure what the base diameter is but this photo provides a frame of reference:

I'm >6 ft. The formation has more of an elliptical x-section so it's a bit fatter along the dimension you're seeing head-on here (but not much).

I think that it really is one of the most dramatic towers I've seen (& certainly one of the most dramatic I've climbed). More so than many in the desert SW.

Thanks for stopping by :)

Very exposed. I would be more scared of the whole thing falling over than climbing the thing.
You chose a good vantage point for the shot.
Happy climbing,
Marc

Thanks Marc. I was more worried about the thing falling apart on us as some of its lower portions seems to consist of huge, hollow sounding blocks :)
