Description 

This short route ascends the ridge on the West side of Tiny Tower. It is a fun solo scramble if comfortable at the grade. Climb up the "ornate" ridge as Roach describes it and move left of it near the top by using a horizontal crack. From there a couple more moves put you on the summit.

Descent - Downclimb the East face for 15-20 feet to a horizontal crack and traverse North to a notch and downclimb West.

One of those (rare) places where Fountain Sandstone is crumbly like desert sandstone.
