This unusual and exhilarating route has three parts: First is the "LEAP!" After clipping the first bolt dyno for the finger edge, straight arm mantle and make sure you clip the second bolt! Then pinch the arete while pulling up on tiny feet to stand on the larger previous finger edge. Clip the third bolt and jug into the 5.9 crack of "African Drag Queen" that leads to that route's two bolt anchor. Clip the left 1/2 inch bolt of the anchor and hang your trad gear on the right bolt prior to moving up and left onto the three bolt face. The face is demanding especially for shorter climbers!
Starts on the southeast arete and moves to the middle of the east face of Togo Tower.
Pairs of .5, .75, and a #2 along with four long slings, and seven QDs gets you to the top of this spectacular tower where chains await!
