Difficult route that felt harder than the 5.10 rating. Start under the left side of the blank face about 1/2 way up the tower. Climb easy rock to the base of the steep face. There are three bolts on the face, with top anchors (the same as for Staircase) that are set well back from the top. The face is difficult, with insecure, reachy holds. It's a little easier if you stay to the left of the bolts. Lunge for a good horizontal under the final overhang. The final moves over the small overhang at the top are on big jugs and are a lot of fun.


Climbs the left side of the main face on Left Tower.


Can be led as a sport climb (with a significant run out over easy terrain below the steep wall), or top roped using a set of anchors set back from the summit.

The easy, runout terrain can be protected with a #1 c4 if I remember correctly. As you reach the face, you will find yourself thinking "There's got to be a way." Seems like a bad route until you figure out the exact sequence (there is only one!)
