Description 

The far left side of the tower as you are looking at it from the road. The North side of the tower starts at the far left with Technowitch and continues, ending with Jabberwocky and Rubber Mission/Full Rubber Mission; which bleed into the west face of the tower.

Shady most of the day and can be windy.


Getting There 

Short approach from the camping. Find the tower (as if you could miss it), and continue past it on the trail in front. The trail switches back soon and will put you right at the in front of the routes you wish to climb. Please stay on the trail.

A super enduro-fest with a high crux. There's two ways to go about it- the short person version and the long person version. Taller people head right to the hold on Straight On Til Morning and shorter people generally go straight up. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in NM
