Description

On the Southeast (lowest) side of the tower is a hand crack that starts about a third of the way up. Head for this. Jam the crack or pull the jugs, your choice, for the offwidth to the top. Bolted anchor at the top; rap down the back side (uphill side) toward Chihuahua Chimichanga and Hennig's Blunder.

[Hide Comment] I left a Metolius Curve Nut #1 fixed above halfway up this route, couldn't clean it out and it was getting dark, so didn't have time to mess with it.

I climbed the route again today hoping to find it, but it seems that someone else may have gotten it. I also found two carabiners on the chains of the 5.9 in the dihedral. I am hoping that the owner of the biners has my nut and would be willing to exchange.

I still can't figure out exactly how this route is supposed to go, there seem to be many possible variations. I have to get used to not following a bolt line!

Great route though. It will take any size cam you have! Oct 29, 2006

[Hide Comment] This route is definitely longer than 90 feet. Also, although I didn't finish on this variation, I was right underneath its finish and what's described as an offwidth looked more like a squeeze chimney or wider.

But yeah, a little "Lost and Undecided" is also how I felt before heading onto the "Which is Which" finish on the right side of the face. Oct 24, 2007
