You will find multiple cruxes and lots of big, yet disappointingly pumpy holds on this steep, left trending route.
Pull on and immediately do one of the hardest moves to a huge jug. Keep moving left along a cobble rail negotiating some small roofs and overlaps. Clip the very long draw, and continue moving left to the last decent rest below the final crux. A couple of lateral moves on smaller holds gets you to better holds which lead to the chains.
Beware of sharp carabiners on this one. Gun Tower is a very popular warm up for the harder routes and the combination of rope drag, and high traffic cause these carabiners to wear quickly.
On the left side of the cave. Look for an obvious left trending rail. Just right of Neptune's Spear, which has black hangers.
Bolts and a two bolt anchor.

One of the hardest 12c's I've ever done. Couldn't really find the rest before the crux at the end.
