The Yellow Lichen Towers are three rock pinnacles just north of Ingalls Peak. However, the highest point of the formation (at 7000') is the large mass of the "Yellow Lichen Castle" immediately north of the towers.

Once climber said of the area: "Rotten crumbly towers of dubious repute. Bring hardhats, hutzpah and then question why you are there"
