About The Wind Tower:

This tower is about 300 ft. tall, and most of the climbing is done on the slabby and moderately angled west face. The approach takes an arduous 5 min. from the parking lot. Take the bridge across S. Boulder Creek, then take the marked path up to the wall. Please stay on the path since it is well built to minimize erosion and rock slide. Decent is achieved my scrambling north along the top of the tower to a large notch where two rappel bolts await you. Make a single rope rappel to the trail.
