On the East side of the Tower, there is a chimney with a flake inside of it. Climb the chimney to a ledge with a bolted anchor (5.9) Continue up the easy, slab face to the right without any gear to reach the top of the tower and a one bolt anchor. Descent: Rap from top of tower with double ropes, or single rope rappel to the ledge of pitch 1 and rap again.


Chimney on East face (right side if facing tower)


finger to small hands gear, bolt anchors on top of each pitch.
