Safeway Tower: Ute Canyon Colorado National Monument

This is an aid climb that folks told me to free climb, I looked at it multiple times with the scope and was skeptical for years. I really thought that it was a beautiful tower but filled with choss. I was right. There was some nice rock and that places that could be free climbed were as solid as wet sand. Either way it was a joy to summit another tower and suffer through below freezing temperatures.
