Description 

A small detached tower and a larger to the right, hold a few quality 12's and a sick looking project. Nice setting right next to the river.


Getting There 

From the bottom of the upper approach take the left trail and then skirt the talus slope on its right, squeezing between the river and the tower to a small belay area.

Start at a crack/seam right of the arete. This leads to a long leftward span move (crux) followed by another long move to gain the horizontal/ledge. Move left again up a steeper face section, then into the handcrack which is followed to the top. Good climbing and well bolted....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
