“Remnant Tower, ” Colorado National Monument. This small spire guards the entrance to Lizard Canyon and the north entrance. It is just south of P 4715. In May Walt Kuentzel and I made the first free ascent and the second overall ascent. It was first done by Layton Kor, Harvey Carter and John Auld in 1963. The initial A3 overhang goes free at 5.9 and the remainder is well protected chimneying on good rock (II, 5.9).
