This is the pitch after the corner, wide but manageable (also felt soft for 5.11a).  A #5 BD is nice but not required (pro in back)

We approached from Echo Creek which was mellow but much longer.  We returned by heading toward Reymann Lake meadow and then gaining the ridge before heading down to Elizabeth Lake

This the 'third' variation for P2 that isn't in the guide and is way harder than 5.9.

Comments: Nice climb for a half day outing and you get to summit a cool tower. The approach pitches to the corner aren't really pitches (more like grassy scrambling). The Next two pitches are great, the last 2 pitches are pretty terrible (loose, super mossy and wandery).

It might be better to climb Brett Hammer (further right of The White Tower on the overhanging face of Terrace Tower) and then just do the corner pitch on The White Tower if you have time after rapping Brett Hammer.

Comments: Did first pitch and bailed due to several factors:
-Got totally worked on the first pitch (scary lead)
-Lack of psych due to how bad the rock quality was on P1

I am curious how the upper pitches are, but if they are anything like P1 I wouldn't go back. Don't expect much jamming on that pitch,... or good pro. I'd call it heads-up, sustained & bouldery 5.11b/c.

Comments: Enjoyable route with a bouldery start finishing with some great casual jamming. If you're tall you can place some small pieces at the base of the crack while still in the left crack to protect the crux moves.

Comments: It's not difficult to stay under the bolts after pulling the roof despite all the chalked up jugs out left towards the arete. There are good crimps,... they just don't have any chalk on them.
