Blast off!

Description 

An obvious chimney on the north side splits the tower from the rest of the rock. Blast off and squirm up the unprotected chimney and clip a bolt at about 10 feet up. Keep squirming for ten more feet to a nice horizontal break and some gear placements. A hidden wide crack hides around to the west and offers more gear. Get on top of the shorter summit and find a nice 0.4 camalot placement in a pocket to protect the step across and face climbing to the quaint summit. Descend back to earth by lowering or rapping from the summit.

Location 

The obvious chimney on the north side of the tower.

Protection 

One bolt, #1 camalot, #4 camalot and a 0.4 camalot. Chain anchor on summit.
