Access is always an issue here. Details
Please do not litter and observe all regulations. We had to fight to regain access at one time, and we don't want to lose the privilege again. Local ethics and refuge regulations are that no bolting is permitted unless expressly authorized by the park. Leave the hammer and nails at home, no fixed gear please. Everything will go clean.
DescriptionGreat climb with some nice friction opportunities. Sometimes you can even get in a little chimneying in.
LocationThe left side of Leaning tower. If you follow the trail a little to the left you will find big slab and nice spot to lace up. Climb up to the corner and set a belay. The second pitch has a couple of options that are really not very good.
Scramble off to the south or rap at Lycra sheath (not recommended unless your TRing it).
