"Ivory Tower - Left" (5.8 OW)

Closures for Peregrine Falcon Protection MORE INFO >>>


A fun, easy offwidth that still requires you to actually use some OW technique. Low suffer quotient.


Left side of the Ivory Tower, between Lord Caffeine and Tideline.


A #6 camalot can be pushed up the first 20 ft. for those who don't want to run it out. Otherwise, some medium (#2-#4 camalot) pieces will suffice.
