Description

This is an awesome route that starts in the obvious, steep dihedral system to the right of the Tapeworm. I soloed this route in three days in the fall of 1998. This is a good introduction to some of the harder routes in the Fishers.

P1- This pitch used to be harder, but bolts have been added by someone who can't respect other peoples routes. Climb up the bolts/drilled angles to a ledge. (5.6 A1)

P2- Climb up the steep thin crack over a small roof leading to the dihedral. There are a few bolts and 1/4" holes on this pitch. (A3+)

P3- Nail up the right facing dihedral over some bulges to another hanging belay. (A3+)

P4- Thin nailing leads to some tricky nailing through a rotten band. A short bolt ladder leads to a small pendulum left into a good crack in a corner and another hanging belay. (A3)

P5- Climb A1 which progressively gets harder to a wide crack and then to a small stance. (A2+)

P6- Climb up and right up a muddy crack passing a few bolts to a small ledge. (A3)

P7- Climb a wide crack (bongs useful here) to a 5.8 chimney with three bolts to a belay in an alcove. (5.8 A2+)

P8- Climb a wide (5") right facing corner at 5.9 offwidth with a few moves of aid to a belay at the start of a bolt ladder. (5.9 A2+)

P9- Climb a bolt ladder (which is part of the last pitch of the North Chimney route) to the summit.

Descent- Rappel Phantom Spirit on the opposite side of the tower.

Protection

3-4 sets of cams from smallest to #3 camalots. 2 sets of bigger cams. 2-3 sets of stoppers. 20 KB's, 10-15 LA's, 8 baby angles, and 4-5 each angles to 2 inch. Some hooks.
