Description

This route takes the central gully of the Block Tower in 4 pitches. Although moderately rated, most climbers will find the route challenging unless well versed in unprotected wide chimneying. This route alternates with sections of perfect, water-washed granite and groveling past gravel filled constrictions. A fun S.Platte adventure climb.

Location

The climb starts to the right of Hurt Dance on the right side of the large boulder leaning on the face. This is left of the obvious, sickle-shaped, left-facing, shallow corner/flake (Bungi Man). Hike down between the Poe Buttress and Block Tower.

Protection

Pro to 5" with extra 2.5-3".
