Description 

This well-bolted line climbs the lower right pillar up the west face in two pitches. It's a little gritty but will clean up nicely with more traffic. A few cams might help, as a couple of bolts are not obvious, but when you want them, they are there. The crux, at the end of the first short pitch, is well protected.
This is a fun climb. Too bad it doesn't continue to the summit, which might be two more pitches... anyone?

Location 

Go to the base of the rightmost part of the Tower and the route is clearly defined by the bolts. Start on a slab that leads to a bulging fin. Climb the fin and belay. Finish by climbing directly up the slab and face to the next set of chains.

Protection 

Bolts and chain anchors make for a convenient and safe ascent.
