Description:

From Genoa Bay Rd. trailhead take the not so obvious right hand junction about 50. m. in off of the main trail to the Narrows. This trail used to be well traveled but is not seeing much use. I think it may even be slightly shorter than the normal trail in. Stay on this trail for about 10 min. until you come into the clearing under the power lines. Look up hill and you will see the tower with the power lines going over top. You will have to hike around the base of a cool overhanging sandstone outcropping in order to get to the top to access the anchor. Alternatively, stay on the main trail or this trail (this trail joins the main trail shortly after the power lines) and you will cross the power lines again in a few minutes. Back track along the power line and you will eventually be at the top of the tower.
