Description

This is a remote monolith of immaculate granite found in the middle of the woods. To date it has about 10 routes on it that are all trad and mostly crack climbing. Developed entirely by Rio Rose and Dave Jacobsen, it has worthwhile climbing from 5.2 to 5.12. There is much more potential, maybe even some aid climbing! This place would probably get more love if someone would bolt some of the stuff (most of it looks pretty sick). Anyway, a really cool tower that has a day's worth of stuff and a guarantee that you'll have the place to yourself.

Where the heck am I going?

Approximately an hour from other established areas, coming here is only recommended if you like trad/aid climbing at Pway and have climbed out the park. Follow the Shaw trail until the junction for Split Rock Trail. After a minute or two down the Split Rock Trail, the tower will be directly on the left hand side of the trail.

Got on most of the routes listed in the guidebook a few days ago. Really fun spot that is as tall (if not taller) than the Upper Cliffs. Easiest way to navigate here is to take the Shaw Trail to the Split Rock Trail. The tower is actually touching the trail a minute or two down from the junction.

Easiest way up - Left angling crack felt about 5.4.
Slabs - Left felt 5.8, Middle/Right felt 5.7
Grades range from 5.8-5.12 for the other climbs, I'll post them if I eventually get around to cleaning them. Jun 7, 2017
