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

Protection

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

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

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

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
