Desert Towers is about the climbs. Climbs that feature the full arsenal of rock climbing challenges: loose rock, dangerously runout climbing, terrible anchors, huge approaches across awful terrain, flat tires, lightning, scorpions, snakes and, in addition, technically difficult climbing. Desert Towers is about the stories. Stories of grit, fear, determination, searching, victory, defeat, luck and friendship. Stories etched in the harsh, clear light of the desert. Desert Towers is about the summits. To reach a summit that few have ever visited is a rare thrill--yet a basic human urge that every child who has climbed a tree can understand. Desert Towers is about the desert-tower climbing experience. An experience in danger of being tamed (or even vanishing) in our modern, convenient world. Long may there be a few remote desert towers guarded by exquisitely frustrating challenges, their summits only to be reached by the most brave, stubborn and highly skilled.
