Climbs up overhanging wall on steep edges. Requires balance and body tension to pull through crux moves.
Starts easy but quickly moves into a crimp fest that will capture your full attention.


To the north of dark tower about 20 yards. Most easily accesses by walking around the tower and scrambling up immediately beneath the route. Easily identified by the steep gray face with a black streak running down a portion of the route.


5 bolts to Rap anchors.
