Description [Suggest Change]
A good route at Tower, but less frequently done than others due to it's less striking initial appearance. Still, this is one of the better moderate lines at the cliff, yet pumpy for it's grade. Locate the crack to climber's right of Arachnid and climb the crack and well-featured rock through a steep spot to end of the crack and then up face movies to join another system, which leads to a ledge with slings around some trees. Rap back to the base from these fixed anchors.
Location [Suggest Change]
Follow the approach trail up the narrow end of Tower Rock and stay left around the end, continuing to the huge left facing corner and rockhouse with the handcrack (Arachnid). Backtrack 10 meters to the previous crack system, which is steep and pumpy.
Protection [Suggest Change]
A standard light rack to hand-sized.
