Description Suggest change

Start on the side of the tower facing the canyon wall and step up to a bit of slabby rock. Move to a short, somewhat overhanging, left-facing headwall. Get over the overhang and follow the crack that trends up and right, then step around onto the west face of the tower for a last seven or eight feet of exposed climbing (a small TCU may be used to alleviate some of the exposed feeling).

Location Suggest change

Ansaid Tower is a short, detached tower to the east of most of the climbs on the north side of Donnelly Canyon. The space between the tower and the wall is a nice, shady spot for lunch.

This link should show the tower.

Protection Suggest change

Two #2 Camalot C4s, one #2 Camalot C3. Optional #.75 Camalot for the overhanging move if you are short and can't get a #2 over the lip.

At the top are a couple of drilled pins and two new bolts (as of November 2007) for a rap anchor.
