From the turnoff to Swaseys Cabin on the Rods Valley Road, drive 1 mile south to a side road heading west. Drive down that to its end at 0.4 miles. From the parking area walk west along the base of the cliffs until the towers come into view. Walk around the west side of the tower, scramble up and around the north side until reaching the saddle between the towers.


A set of cams and stoppers. (Either stoppers or rivet hangers for 2 hangerless bolts.

The first bolt is pretty loose, but it can be skipped by stemming far left and getting micro cams in. Makes the start a bit more spicy though. Definitely be ready to get in those top steps, Ben did a good job spacing the bolts out. A single 70 meter is more than enough to get back down. Jun 11, 2014
