DescriptionPitch 1- Start on the SW corner of the tower and climb the obvious chimney with chockstones in the back of it to a two bolt belay on a nice ledge. 5.8R 90 feet.
(You can also avoid the chimney by 4th class scrambling to the right of the chimney up a very loose gully system, but the chimney is good).
Pitch 2- Move the belay up to a nice, sandy, flat area in the middle of group of summits. Face west and climb a 5.9+ crack to a ledge. Look left and clip a bolt. 5.10 face climbing left and up leads to another bolt. An aid move leads to one more bolt, then C2 climbing leads to 5.8 climbing to gain a ledge below the summit pinnacle. 5.8+ R climbing leads to a two bolt belay at the summit. There is a summit register under some rocks on the top.
To Descend, rappel the route.
