Featured Route For Tower of the Gods

Zeus 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c  SD : Palisades State Park : Tower of the Gods
Fun lead/climb that starts left of Mesiah. Crack looks like a lightning bolt that goes up and left above a slab that is off limits. Anticlimatic end inside a chimney with a large, blocky chockstone in it. A more exciting finish is to protect in the chimney and head right for a no-pro to the top. (The old original book says this route follows the crack for a bit then goes straight up. I dont remember it there is any protection for this version...) ...[more]   Browse More Classics in SD
