|Staying Power Towers
The route on the West face of the tower, to the left of the bolted off-width.
Climb past a small "roof" before tackling the sustained upper headwall. A power endurance test. Considered a gorge classic.
West face of the tower.
9 bolts + mussy's.

Very sustained, very fun. In my opinion, there is no single "stopper" move, just a slew of respectably pumpy moves, which, when added together, make things difficult.

kinda sporty to the first bolt, I see a lot of folks using a stick clip here.
