Climb on the east side of the formation. Scramble up low-angle terrain to first bolt. Move past this and the next one and you're through the crux. Climb the thin face to the top.


7 bolts, some may want a 2" cam to protect the scramble to the first bolt

Guide book calls this a 5.9. Fun route. Another high first bolt.

fun climb. looks like some big flakes off up top causing you to veer right to the finish. Good climbing. Easy climbing to the 1st bolt, no gear needed.

One of my favorites on the Nut Towers. Only 5.9, however.
