Description Suggest change

A fun, stout route just right of the cave. The route on average is slightly overhanging but it's stepped, so the cruxes are all pretty steep. A bouldery crux at the first bolt, another at the 2nd bolt, and a third, more pumpy type crux up high. The 2nd crux is the burliest I'd say, an awkward bulge. I've only climbed the first pitch, it's .11d. The 2nd pitch looks like fun though.

Location Suggest change

Tower 1, just right of the cave.

Protection Suggest change

You'll want a piece in between the 1st and 2nd bolt. A .4 camalot went in closer to the 2nd bolt, if you wanted a piece a little lower, probably a .5 or so. Draws other than that.
