Description 

Good winter multipicth adventure. Gets sun around 10:30 AM in January. If winds pick up it can be quite cold. Probably only been climbed twice.

Getting There 

Approach is about an hour and ten minutes with a fit party. Make your way up the Hands Drainage until you spy a free standing tower to your left with an awesome wide crack that splits the summit bloc.
