Description [Suggest Change]
Start on the NW side of tower. Scramble up the west (right) side of a big triangular sandy mass to reach a crack in a corner. Nail the crack, move right to a short bolt ladder that gets you through the white stuff (chert, etc.), then move right and climb up the sort of gully on the west side to the summit. When I led this gulley in 1991 about 5,000 pounds of loose rock fell down it.
Protection [Suggest Change]
Full rack, pins, etc. I nailed the crack using deadmen, snow pickets, etc.
