Hillary following just past the easy crux.


Note: This route is not on the tower proper - see "Location" below.

Hand- and fist-jam the lower section past a prickly raspberry bush, pull through a steeper section in the middle (crux), then continue jamming big hands until you reach the end of the crack. From here, slab out right to the final small pinnacle and pull up on top.


This is on the east-facing side of the obvious formation in the center of the meadow below the tower in McCurdy Park.


Cams from 0.5 to 3 inches.

Descent: rap off webbing and a single quicklink (replaced on 6/4/12).
