This is a VERY enjoyable pitch with excellent protection. Another Tower dihedral which utilizes stemming and a few face moves. The crux comes about 20 or so feet below the anchors.

A full set of stoppers and Camalots to #3.

This is a very enjoyable climb with some cool stemming down low followed by a stemmy/facey crux near the top. A good warmup for some of the more difficult routes in the area.
