Description

This is the obvious looking tower just behind and left of Tower 2. Both of these classic routes (left and right) start on the backside, and realistically must be lead (although years ago after much consternation we swung the rope over and batman'd up one side to set up a TR). Going up and right (facing east)is definitely the easier of the two, with the left (facing west) taking a palmy, minimal feet traverse with dubious pro to a dead vertical crack (probably 5.11a).

Location

Just behind Tower Two. Largish tower with a marshmallow shaped head on top.

Protection

Thin to 2.5" Bolts for belay/lower off

Edit: After looking at the picture posted here, I'm pretty sure the triangle shaped block has since moved. It leans out a few inches now and it moves if you grab it.

Correct me if I'm wrong here, this was my first time on it. Oct 25, 2013

Don't let Scotty intimidate you. The right crack is not a bad lead. The left crack is definitely 5.11.

One big cam for the start (#4 C4, backclean) and the rest is TCU to 1". Brave souls may want to bypass the starting cam. The left variation looks like a dangerous lead but can be TR'd after you get to the top. Sep 5, 2008
