A delicate, seemingly endless climb up the broad, tall Tower Face. The two main sections are incredibly varied and make this a rewarding HVS. Start up easy ground to gain a thin, curving crack. Balance up this to a good undercling and a poor right-facing flake. Move up the flake and make a strenuous crux move to a left-facing flake out right. (The E2 5b Direct variation moves straight from the undercling to the upper flake past two hard moves.) Follow this better flake to a horizontal, which is then traversed left into the base of the enormous, juggy upper flake.


On the Tower Buttress, which should be self-explanatory. To the right of Goliath's Groove and above the main body of Plantation boulders.


Good small nuts and cams; pro on the upper flake is suspect. Bring a larger cam, or just run it out on the easy ground.
