Description

A very popular route leading to the left summit tower of the Central Towers, Lion's Way heads up and right through broken terrain finding a 5.6 corner to more blocky steps. Then, climbing past a slab and another series of steep steps, you climb to the base of the left most Central Tower. Scramble up to gain the impressive summit. Descent is achieved via the gully between the North Tower and the Central Towers. Look for rap anchors to get past the steepest section. Bring an axe if the gully is still heavy with snow.

Location

Beginning to the far left of the Central Towers' base, look for a large whitish flake standing against the wall. The climb begins just uphill of this flake aiming right through some 4th and low 5th class terrain.

Protection

Standard alpine rack.

Fun climb with a great view, good warm up to the area. Somewhat broken up, fun 5.6 section go by too quick. Aug 16, 2015
