Featured Route For Big Tower
Bust a Move 5.12a 7a+ 25 VIII+ 25 E5 6a CA
: Sierra Eastside
: ... : Big Tower
This route climbs out the center of the roof on the Big Tower. The crux comes right at the lip of the roof and is quite brief. It is followed by wandering 5.10 climbing up the face and arete. The crux can also be toproped by climbing the first two bolts of Big Screen (10b) to the right and then move left to connect with the upper part of Bust a Move. Since the crux is basically a one mover, this climb feels light for 12a, but its a hard move nonetheless....[more] Browse More Classics in CA

A few fun climbs in this area. The two river crossings to the Big Tower/Pink Face areas have been improved. The log crossing at the south buttress has been stabilized with more branches added. The north crossing below the Pink Face now has a few planks to make it easier.
