The route trends left then back right to stand on top of pillar just before the last bolt to the anchors. The best part of the route is getting to the anchors.
This is the route about 40' right of 'Leaning Tower'.
A short path up to the base from the cliff-base trail leads to the route.
8 bolts, bolted anchors.

I think that it's rare to get an overhung 5.8, subtlely overhung but overhung nonetheless. Fun Route.

This route has some awkward moves for an 8, and the top anchor move is not good. The ledge is not good to stand on to anchor in, and there is only a bad sidepull to hold on to.

Not sure if it's very 5.8 at the mini-roof... maybe .9. Still a good warm-up!
