Our shadows projecting on to the top of 8 Ball Tower after we climbed the next square shaped formation to the south (cool and definitely an independent summit but not quite a tower). If for some reason you want to repeat the route go up the chimney on P1 of Rolling with the 8 ball and then bushwhack 40' left to an obvious severely overhanging handcrack/ow start. Go up this and the dihedral to a sloping area (tree belay), and then up the notch and one more short poorly protected pitch to the top. We named the formation something but I can't for the life of me remember what. There is a large summit cairn and a very interesting natural bollard thing for the rap anchor off the summit.
