Climbing is great, don't do this if you aren't SOLID leading 5.8


It is the West face of the tower detached from the Y Crack Wall.


Random assortment - some stoppers for sure. Spacey in places.

[Hide Comment] I had forgot all about this route..... I recall lots of loose rock, and a large hollow flake right at the top. Fun climbing but probably not a safe lead... Nov 17, 2007

[Hide Comment] I'm not sure, but maybe some aging DLFAer did this first? I always thought this would be a good bolted moderate, though I never did climb it. May 5, 2008

[Hide Comment] On this small tower, the climb is the north-side face and cracks. Only stating since I climbed here starting in early 80's. Back about the time you could see the spires more clearly from the road! I remember the day the rock was delivered and the locals starting carving it! May 20, 2015
