|Great Googly Moogly
If you actually like freeclimbing in the Fishers, this is a really great one pitch tower. Start up a fisty, awkward thrutch up to a scary, right-angling dirt ramp. Work up to the overhanging OW to a ledge/rest. The offwidth is steep but offers good friction on the Carhartts and some good cobbles on the inside to help out with the thrutchery. After the rest, a few more squeezy moves get you to the anchors. A short, easy scramble gets you to the summit.
Medium and large stoppers, set of TCUs/Aliens, hand and fist sized cams, #5 Friend or similar.

This thing is really good. It's no 5.10 though, and can be done with little or no O/W technique. Solid rock for the business up top, the bottom is a fisher though.

we brought a double set of camalots to #6. sewed it up pretty good. it's in the shade. burrr. a single 70 gets ya down. (just barely). good anchors. we added new webbing . we did puttermans pile first. from there it's a short walk over to GGM. cool towers.
