The Stool to the left of King Arthur's Seat.
The route starts on to the NE side of the Stool on the SE side of the fin feature.
P1-Climb up the huecos placing gear in the holes. Clip a bolt and mantel on to a ledge. Walk the ledge left up a ramp around the tower to a good gear belay on a ledge. The belay takes .75 and 1 size. 150' 5.8.
P2-Climb 5.6 up to the notch between King Arthur's Seat and the Stool. Climb the bolt ladder up to the summit and a two bolt belay. 5.8 C1+ 60'.
Descent- Double rope rappel down the SE face.
Note- The 2nd and 4th bolts wiggle in there holes. The rock is soft so if anyone is going to replace them bring something big.
This tower is located NE of King Arthur's Seat.
Single set .3 to 3 Camalot doubles in the hand sizes. Aid stuff(2 to 3 bolts on the bolt ladder don't have hangers). Two 60m ropes.

There is potential for an alternate first pitch to the notch between King Arthur's Seat and The Stool. It would climb cracks in on the South side of the tower. I would guess it would go at 5.9 or 5.10.

This tower was fun to put up, especially in an area where most towers have ben climbed.
However, with over a collective 300 towers between us, Ben and I agreed it was still the worst rock we have ever been on. Mar's Hotel was finally beat!
