The Nerve 5.11a 6c 22 VII+ 22 E3 5c  UT : Wasatch Range : ... : West Bell Tower
Located on the often overlooked West Bell Tower, The Nerve bolsters some awesome exposure, decent rock, and some intimidating and committing moves. 3 pitches of variety and featured stone give this route reason to venture to the Tower.Pitch 1 Climb the polished and immaculate stone of the shallow corner via thin gear and thin moves.

It is now best to descend this formation down the east gully as opposed the west as was suggested in the Ruckman's guidebook.

It is possible to rap directly down the becky Route with a 70m rope. *See the Becky Route comments for details.*

(It may still be possible to rap with a 60m,we had a 70m and skipped an anchor)

I don't recomend rappelling the route, I had a 70 and still came up short. I had to do some really sketchy down climbing, not worth it. The walk off to the east takes about 10-15 minutes and is so much safer. A good route worth doing~
