Walls of Jericho
In Upper Cathedral Valley, along east-west cliff complex somewhat like a peninsula extending from Hartnet Plateau parallels the road. It was first called Wall Street for the supposed resemblance to the skyscrapers of Manhattan. Later, some began using Walls of Jericho in reference to visible crumbling. Regardless, it is one of the most impressive formations in Cathedral Valley.

These walls rise over 400' from their base. The highest peaks of Cathedral Valley rise around 500'.

I honestly don't know if this tower has ever been climbed. Many of the spires out here haven't, a few are closed to climbing, and I haven't been able to find any information on any routes that do exist.

...that is the first thing one thinks about when seeing this picture - Jericho, or Masada, or Ur! Thanks for posting this picture!
