Description

This tower requires a fairly short hike and an adventurous climber, or two.

Climbed at 5.8 A0 or 5.11.

The second time I ascended this route, I inadvertently knocked a seemingly "OK" piece of rock off the wall - it was huge. Don't know what the current choss factor is like, but be careful.

This route is fun and often windy. Fresh snow can make topping out the final moves a little scary, so avoid that situation of possible, but I guess that goes for many routes!

The climbing is fairly easy (at A0) and fairly well protected to a chimney. Climb the chimney and belay here or keep climbing to the summit with extra rope drag.

Summit moves: Climb a fairly well spaced bolt ladder to top by aid or free climbing at 5.11. Slightly heady above bolts.

Summary: Go out and have some fun, mostly easy climbing, easy summit, good view.

Protection

One set of friends and stoppers. Long slings, potentially for aiding.
