Description Suggest change

This classic route climbs the righthand of two cracks on the northeast face of Hidden Tower. Climb the perfect hand and finger crack that virtually eats gear. Just below the summit, you can either finish up the crack onto the right arete or move a bit left across the face to a flake and follow that to the top. 

There is a multiple bolt anchor on the summit that is used for all of the routes on the tower. A single 50m rope can be used to rappel back to the ground.

Protection Suggest change

Standard rack to 2". If you want to go old school, just take hexes! Three bolt anchor/rap
