Just got back from a trip up to the tower! This time we stayed in Franks yard where he lets climbers graciously stay for free. Not only is there a toilet, but hot showers as well! We decided to show our appreciation by helping out on the roof to remove all the shingles, tar paper, and thousands of nails in preperation for a roofing crew to finish the job. We enjoyed a hard day of work on the roof as our "rest day". After enjoying summiting the tower via assymbline, and climbing 5.10 cracks on the west face. At days end we enjoyed a gracious meal of devils tower climbers stew, and blondies prepared by the lovely hostess Juliana!! We enjoyed good company, and spectacular views. I can't wait to go back.
