Description 

True adventure climb on the North Face of West Tower. It takes the obvious line directly up the middle of the face. The bottom half of the route is steep snow and ice climbing. Once in the slot the top half of the route is the crux with several large chockstones to overcome. This route is extremely sustained, but very fun. Descend the west ridge.

Location 

It is the only line to date on the N. Face of West Tower. Follow the snow as high up the face as you can then trend left onto the face. Descend the West Ridge

Protection 

1-2 racks of cams to a #3, nuts, pins. Bring 1-2 pickets, and 4-6 screws.
