Slightly awkward climbing down low, crux is probably near the top, but depends on the climber. On the easy side of 5.7.

Location

The tower about 10-15 feet into the canyon (left) from Garbageboy and Trash Disco, easily visible from both.

Protection

4 bolts to chains

Thanks for the info. I don't know too much about the history or even the name of this route, so any information is definitely welcome. Nov 28, 2007

Talked to James today; apparently the name of the route is, "Dunce Cap." And yes, James put this route up. Mar 16, 2008

Anyone know what's up with the two bolts on the face left around the corner from Dunce Cap? No hangers but bolts and nuts. We have enjoyed TRing that face, so maybe someone is thinking of adding a route there? Apr 27, 2018
