Description

A wide crack splits this entire tiny tower (think of a tuning fork). This route climbed the crack on the north side of the tower, starting from a kind of pedestal visible in the picture.
To get to onto that pedestal, throw your rope around the tower, then tie it off and jumar up to the pedestal. From there you can simply plug cams in the crack. The "descent" was done by lowering the leader off the south side. The leader then acted as an anchor while the second jumared the rope on the north side to bag the top.

Protection

A range of mostly cams, from small to a few on the larger side (#4s and 5s).
