Though suffering from its neighbor immediately across the valley (a piece of rock you might have heard about, called El Capitan), the aptly named Leaning Tower still has the distinction of being one of the most overhanging walls in North America. The regular West Face route is a great first big wall for many Yosemite aspirants, and the nearby Wall of Ages and Fifi Buttress are seeing some interesting and rarely climbed new routes being regularly put up.
