DescriptionLost in Space climbs the tower which is 5-10 minutes east of Mars Attacks. The route begins on the Northwest corner of the tower. The first pitch is marked by a belay bolt. The first two pitches climb the western pointing "toe" of the tower. Pitches three and four are on the south face.
Pitch 1 - 5.7 Climb a system of cracks through the limestone band to a ledge. Make a gear anchor here. (1.5 - 2.5")
Pitch 2 - 5.7 A very short pitch. Step up, clip a bolt, mantle and run out the rope to the far side of a very large ledge to a hidden one bolt belay anchor. This anchor is located on the far side of the ledge and down a small drop off.
Pitch 3 - 5.7 Climb up cracks for 20' then traverse right for approximately 40' to a two bolt belay.
Pitch 4 - 5.10- Climb straight up the hand to fist to off-width crack. Keep an eye out for face holds. (Best pitch on route!)
