I think we did the FFA during the second ascent (possible variation?) which we dubbed Pu Plux Putterclan Hatred variation with Chris Donharl on 20 January 2000. Cam, does this count for anything???

A good VOG route with mostly solid rock and pretty good crack climbing. P1 was silty from runoff, but still fun. If the summit register is to be believed, we were the 20th ascent. A couple notes:
1. This tower is more like 150', not 450' as stated above!
2. Rap 2X with one rope (60m sufficient) from decent 3/8" bolts with webbing.
3. (1X) .4-.75 BD, (2X) #1-#4 BD, (1X) #5 BD C4 worked well.
