Eph Hanks Tower

Seen from the road to Capitol Gorge. The "tower" is actually the northern end of a ridge and is not even the highpoint of the ridge. The summit block may look challenging from below, but it can be approached from the south via the ridgeline and can be scrambled up pretty easily. Getting up the ridge itself can be challenging, though, and one should expect Class 4 conditions and not a lot of options.
