the turkeys wild. if you do the dod route now you must bring a bolt kit, there are a few missing a on the last pitch, wich made it feel like new wave A3+ with the condition of the fixed pro. The aid Rating now is more like 5.9 A2+/C3, you could take some long falls. The only new bolt on the tower is at the P2 anchor. The fixed tent stake pitons are still there 25 years later.... mabey all the bail slings mean something. last time i was there i bootied 5 pitons 8 biners and various slings. we are planning to rebolt next year and will keep you psted. go get it!

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 :)
