Description [Edit]

Pitch 1 climbs the huge, loose crack on the NE side of the tower. Belay in the "eye" that penetrates the tower. P2 climbs out the west side of the tunnel, then moves up and right (north) to easier ground on the north face. This leads to the summit.

Protection [Edit]

wide gear, some small cams, etc.

Sounds like some good adventure climbing. How do you get off this tower? Anything fixed on top? Thanks. Jul 25, 2007
We left a rap anchor on top. A boulder or small tree tied off (I think). Take extra webbing. It's a full roplength rappel to the ground. Oct 5, 2007
