About Cloud Tower:

High above the mouth of Juniper Canyon on the south side sits a massive white pillar capped with red rock. It sits at the top of a massive ramp which serves as its approach. The two routes of note here are Crimson Chrysalis and Cloud Tower.

Approach: Once you are at the mouth of Juniper Canyon, head left along the main trail in. Soon it will start heading up a steep hill toward the base of 'The Ramp.' From here, head up to the top of the ramp, then down the other side a short distance to the base of Crimson. Cloud Tower is a ways further down the other side.

Beta/Updates: It is a good idea to get a very early start. Lines are abundant on Crimson and the approach is strenuous.
