Description

This tower is short and sweet. The route is on the north side of the tower, towards the right. It follows two short slightly overhanging dihedrals to a ledge. From this ledge, climb up the huge scary looking flake, and continue easily to the top. The two cruxes are in the dihedrals at the beginning, and are finger-size dependent.

Location

From the camping area, Allison's Tower is clearly visible 1/4 mile due North. To get there, continue north on the road until you are due east of the tower, and then follow the wash up and west about 100 yards.

Protection

Doubles in small sizes (blue through yellow Alien), plus standard rack up to 2".

For the descent, rap off a three bolt station on the summit.

It ain't the titan, but it is steep on every side, has one narrow aspect, and is about as tall as it is wide on its widest aspect. The climbing is pretty decent too. Dec 22, 2008

The face near the top of the second dihedral is hollow. It may not be necessary to place gear here in this short section, but if you choose to, my experience was: A short fall popped a blue Alien from here, but a pair of Ballnutz held another short fall without budging. Nov 17, 2008

This is the small tower next to Worth the View Spire. It could probably be done on clean aid at around 5.7 C2, but getting onto the ledge at the end of the finger crack would be a tricky thrash. Nov 17, 2008
