Description

The 2hr approach makes this route a well earned prize. Just keep moving west from the base of Resolution Arete til you get to the west side of Aeolian Tower. Climb straight up easy/wide cracks forming the west side of the Aeolian Tower for 3 pitches then the crux bolted pitch awaits on the main wall. Spicy and fun, the crux comes at the start of pitch 4 and it's well protected but a bit of a zig zag, since Joanne bolted it on lead with hooks! After that, it remains a steep mostly direct line that trends a bit left to top out. The very last couple pitches are a bit loose but nothing unmanageable. Get a late return ticket because you will take all day. Joanne and I started walking at 0430 from the highway and returned to the car @ 11pm. Awesome climb and lady.

Protection

Standard rack, bolted crux pitch and sprinkling of bolts on other pitches, bolted anchors and a couple trees.
