Description

Start at a handcrack in the notch between the tower and the wall behind it. Free climb nice handcracks and slabs to a 4 bolt ladder, and then some spooky free moves on sandy rock to the summit.

Location

Annakenna Tower is a small detached tower just east of Secret Pillar described in Desert Rock 2. Park at the campsite for Worth the View Spire, but walk up towards the very impressive looking tower(Secret Pillar) on the same side of the road as the campsite. Annakenna Tower is the smaller tower just beyond Secret Pillar.

Protection

Cams from red alien to 3.5 or 4 camalot. 1 rivet hanger and a few quickdraws.

Really fun route! I think it is on the verge of becoming three stars as it starts to clean up, fun climbing leads to the top of another tower. Cool summit. Mar 12, 2007

I climbed this tower on 3/17/07. Good route, but a bit of loose rock to contend with still. The climbing is not bad to do french free instead of aiding at about 5.8 C0. Mar 20, 2007
