On the Banana Tower, a freestanding piece of rock on the northern end of Grocery Store Walls, find the east face and set up a top rope. Climb the east face in the center on good holds with a crux towards the top.
Addendum: a cobblestone has likely pulled out near the top of the climb making it ~5.10+!
Bolts are located on top of Banana Tower. Use care when getting onto the tower from the top.
