DescriptionFA of the tower is unknown, but local legend Jerry Kanzler did the direct finish in 1967.
P1- Climb a right-leaning crack to a left-facing corner. End on an awesome ledge with rap bolts. 5.6, 60'.
P1a- Do The Dagger
P2- Climb a gorgeous left-facing corner with a crack of varying sizes. Follow it through a series of bulges to the exit out right on a large ledge. 5.8, 150'.
(p 1&2 can be done as one with a 70m and maybe (unconfirmed) w/ a 60m rope.
P3- Grovel up the obvious chimney to easier ground. Scramble to the top. 5.7, 100'.
P3a- DIRECT FINISH. Highly recommended. Climb jugs and jams in a crack through the obvious overhanging face, right of the chimney. Hit easier ground and scramble to top. 5.9, 100'.
