Start to the left of Rubber Mission. This route is on the right side of the north face of the tower. Difficult crux is down low, from there it's a matter of fighting the pump to make it over the lip, where it lightens from there.


11 bolts to anchors.

A truly great climb, classic at the grade (12b seems spot on). Relentlessly steep and pumpy through the 8th bolt or so, with a couple of tricky cruxes thrown in. Top eases off to around 10+, but it's exciting all the way to the anchors. Big clean whippers. Feb 25, 2008

This is by far one of the coolest routes i have ever climbed! Yeh I agree with Dave spot on for 12b, and it isn't over till you scream or clip the anchors. Highly recommended if you want a good 12a+ to work on. The biggest holds you will ever fall off of! Apr 28, 2010
The best of the 12- climbs on the Tower. Fantastic. Jan 18, 2011

Killer route. One of the better sport climbs I've ever climbed. I don't think there's even a .12b move on it, just a ton of .11+ moves one after another. Awesome. Apr 22, 2011
