Melted Tower is a granite crag (7920+ ft) on Kangaroo Ridge, which is a three mile long north-south trending massif in the North Cascades immediately east of Washington Pass. Melted Tower is situated immediately south of Big Kangaroo at the head of Early Winters Creek, which drains into the Methow River, which drains into the Columbia River, on the way to the Pacific Ocean. Melted Tower is visible to travelers at Washington Pass, but the "melted" effect is best seen from Early Winters basin. The first ascent was made by the legendary Fred Beckey and his brother Helmy in 1942.
Refer to Fred Beckey's "Cascade Alpine Guide, Vol. 3" for complete information on the climbing routes for Melted Tower.
