Canyonlands National Park, Airport Tower, Sky Pilot. Mike Baker and Leslie Henderson climbed a new route on Airport Tower in September. Their route, Sky Pilot (IV 5.9 A3), was probably the second ascent of the tower, and the second route on the large formation. It lies about 35 feet right of Wind Shear. In May, 1995, the duo also climbed Sunset Tower (II, 5.8 C2/3) located about 1.5 miles west of the junction of Highways 313 and 191.
