BETA PHOTO: Here it is, I'm not sure which way the route goes.


Climbing is great, don't do this if you aren't SOLID leading 5.8


It is the West face of the tower detached from the Y Crack Wall.


Random assortment - some stoppers for sure. Spacey in places.

I had forgot all about this route..... I recall lots of loose rock, and a large hollow flake right at the top. Fun climbing but probably not a safe lead...

I'm not sure, but maybe some aging DLFAer did this first? I always thought this would be a good bolted moderate, though I never did climb it.
