Description

We approached this tower thinking we might get a first ascent but found that someone had already been there. We named it Pointy Tower until we find out who did the FA and what they named it.

In any case, it’s a 200 foot, wingate tower with a very small summit. The climbing on the only existing route is quite good and there is potential for another. We took a good look at the right arête as we rapped from the shoulder and it looks like it would be a great free pitch. Similar to Thumbelina in the Bridger Jacks.

Did you do the first ascent of this tower?
