Description 

The South side of this peak is over 2000' high in places and is one of the most beautiful walls in the area. While not as popular as the Lotus Flower Tower this wall is a worthy destination by itself. For better information check out George Bell's online guide to the Cirque of Unclimbables at
home.comcast.net/~gibell/cirque/


Getting There 

From Fairy Meadow hike up the left side of the cirque towards Proboscis for about an hour. It is the almost free standing tower on the right, just past Terrace Tower.

On the Southeast face of Bustle tower. 12 pitches of quality granite up one of the most aesthetic towers in the cirque. Named after route topo drawn on a girly magazine of the same name found in a waterproof case at the bivy site in Fairy Meadows. Left of the SE Face Route. Follows left facing dihedrals over a big drippy roof on pitch six. Goes free at mid 5.11, if pitch six isn't too wet. Do it in a day, or fix the first few pitches then fire it the next day....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
