The tower was built by crazy people and I don't think it's holding up very well
Dawn Summers[src]

This Tower was a crude structure built by Sunnydale's mentally-ill population, including the victims of Glorificus, mystically attracted by the coming of the "Big Day". Despite being completed in less than one day, the structure was several stories tall.

The purpose of the tower was to serve as a sacrifical place for Dawn Summers, who was suppossed to be bled by The Abomination in order to spill her blood into a specific location at an specific time. As Dawn's blood contained the energy of The Key, it would shatter the walls between realities, allowing the hellish goddess to return to her home dimension.



Built to privide a safe way up to Dawn to preform the ritual, it was also the location that the minions and victims of Glory were defending in 'The Gift'.
