DescriptionThe South Continental Tower, rightmost in the group of three, contains the best of what alpine granite has to offer: splitter cracks, beautiful golden knobs and chickenheads, and outstanding exposure. Plenty of room for other routes, probably at a pretty high level of difficulty.
The "Tower" is perhaps best described as a large buttress with an independent summit pinnacle. A huge talus ledge leading to the gully allows for easy retreat beneath the summit tower.
The main buttress faces west and gets sun in early afternoon. The summit tower contains all exposures, but the two known routes ascend the West Ridge and Southeast Face.
The Tower contains some of the best granite I've climbed on.
