Start next to a tree on the North East side of the tower. Climb route of least resistance to the notch and a one bolt one pin anchor.
We climbed up a loose wide corner to a ledge. Then up another corner, cut left to avoid a roof and mantel onto a ledge/ramp that leads to your choice of a chimney or a nice crack. We chose the crack. 120' 5.10
Climb the wide crack on the smaller feature to the climbers right of the notch. Pass two good bolts in route to the shoulder that has a drilled pin on it. Clip the pin then jump the gap to the main tower and start pulling on draws and standing on drilled pins. This pitch might go free and 5.12? The anchor on top consists of three pins in a crack. 120' 5.10, A0
The route starts on the North East side.
Double set to #4 camalot, draws, etc.
Ian climbing the wide crack on pitch 2.

James Garret thought that maybe George Hurley did the FA.

Good route...wonder who really did the first?
All pins seem pretty bomber (if old). Summit anchor is a bunch of "equalized" drilled pins and such. Seemed pretty good to me.
