Follow the lower 1/2 of this crack, which is set in a shallow corner and involves some a series of short cruxy moves separated by rest stances. Small stoppers offer less-than-ideal pro, be careful. Once beneath the bulging upper hand crack, sink in a good #3 camalot and skirt right onto the arete. Follow this for several more cruxy spots to a small ledge. Clip a bolt and crimp up chert past some suspect blocks to the top. An engaging climb that involves much cerebral maneuvering with some questionable pro.


The striking crack on the up-canyon end of the uphill face. The upper portion of the crack has yet to be scaled, but would probably require some trundling to be a safe option.


RPs, small cams and medium stoppers, #3 camalot, 1 bolt, chain anchor.

Sorry for the lack of photos of either the route or a nice profile pic of the tower. The camera wasn't cooperating that night, plus we were climbing in the last light and on top in the dark due to our after-work start. Will post better shots if I'm up that way again anytime soon. Apr 24, 2008

So after 7 years, this thing finally saw a presumed 2nd ascent (based on the crispy tat on the anchor from the FA). A big thanks to Clay and Terry for replacing said tat with chains! The consensus bumped the grade up a bit, and it holds strong as a heady little jaunt over questionable small pro. Oct 27, 2015

I added two additional bolts to this route on 4/27/2018. They completely remove the PG-13 rating in my opinion. One protects a move up a suspect flake( previously protected with RP), and the other protects the traverse and move on the right arĂȘte( preventing the nasty swing onto the #3 around the corner, or doubled up micro RPs). It can now be climbed on a single set of stoppers and cams up to .75 c4.

This is really a fun route in an exciting setting. Plan on climbing it in the evening for a striking view from the summit! Apr 28, 2018
