The height of the Devil's Tower is not high, it can even be said to be very short, looking like a piece of pudding from afar. In fact, the Devil's Tower is also very special because it is a large cylindrical rock, which looks very natural. Devil's Tower is also very different from other peaks, its surface is almost devoid of vegetation, only smooth cliffs, which further increases the difficulty of the climb.
