Description

This short route ascends the ridge on the West side of Tiny Tower. It is a fun solo scramble if you are comfortable at the grade. Climb up the "ornate" ridge as Roach describes it, and move left of it near the top by using a horizontal crack. From there, a couple more moves put you on the summit.

Descent - downclimb the East face for 15-20 feet to a horizontal crack, traverse North to a notch, and downclimb West.

Protection

Standard Flatiron rack.

Super fun solo. If this was near Chat., it would see near constant traffic.

Not much gear placements to be had. Jun 30, 2016
One of those (rare) places where Fountain Sandstone is crumbly like desert sandstone. Jun 12, 2004
