Fun, sustained, fest of jugs up the tower. Near the middle of the formation. Climb starts below the black streak and continues up through the black streak to the anchors. Technical crux is near the bottom, enduro route the rest of the way up.

Sustained (no snooze ledge, unless you traverse off route), varied climbing on steep rock with good holds. Bottom section provides an interesting contrast to typical Datil climbing, and there's a bit of a runout on big pockets at the end. If you happened to come off, you'd have a whole lot of fun. What more could you want from a tower moderate?

Harder than Golden Stairs but easier than Hippogriff. The chalk washes off this route quickly after any rain, so an onsight attempt can feel a bit wilder than some of the other routes on the tower.

Replaced missing belay hanger (after EFR stole it! Ha Ha!). Thanks again to JB for donating more hardware.
