Lieback up an easy wide crack to start with no protection (pro to 6" if you have it) then up easy terrain to a hand/fist crack on the right side of a stembox which you can stem, jam, lieback and face climb to a belay atop the Black Tower and shared anchors with the Black Tower Crack.


This is the rightmost line on the southeast face and climbs along the left side of the Black Tower to a belay atop it.


Gear to 4", 2 bolt anchor/rap (shared with Black Tower Crack)

This is a very enjoyable climb! It does take good gear all the way up and the stemming above is fantastic. I used an large cam to protect the start (equivalent to a #5 Camalot). Aug 15, 2011

Really nice little climb and highly recommended. #5 BD protects the start but its not necessary Sep 15, 2013

After the initial wide crack, you can go up a nice finger crack on the right side, then traverse over to the final corner at a horizontal. A fun variation. Sep 5, 2017
