Access Issue: June Voluntary Climbing Closure and Seasonal Raptor Closure Details


Climb through the inital layback flake and face moves to the first of three roofs. The first 11a roof prepares you for the very awkward 11c second roof. Obvious moves to the right lead to the final 9+ roof. This route is quite unique to the Tower.


Take the "Tintin/Lakota" gully approach. Upon reaching the main face, traverse left up the talus. The route begins immediatly under the big roof.


EXCELLENT PROTECTION! Quickdraws, Stoppers and Camalots to #3.

This route is probably the most varied on the tower, and is definitely the best route on the SW shoulder. Excellent bolted face climbing leads to a roof, with a short, overhanging, off-fingers crack above that. The first roof is supposedly 5.11a, but it doesn't feel any easier than the second roof to me. A single 70m rope will you get you back to the ground, but rope drag makes simply lowering off a bad idea. Jun 9, 2011

Awesome route! At the first roof stay to the right. There is a bolt just above the lip of the roof that is hard to see. Sep 6, 2016
