DescriptionThis is the original route to the technical summit of Tarryall Tower; probably the easiest way to the top. The biggest pitons available in 1967 were 1/2" ring angles so the hand crack crux had to be done as a long run-out.
Dick went up first and tried the left of a pair of cracks. It was too rotten, so Bob led through, and jammed the right hand crack with little protection. up the right crack. One of the photos shows Dick Yeatts belaying in the left crack and Bob Witters starting up his lead to the top.
