DescriptionFA on Thanksgiving Day, 1996. Climb up to the top of the bedding seam and a nice ledge. 5.8 Continue up the crack (5.9) until it turns into a thin hands/finger crack (5.9) and becomes vertical. Continue up to the chimney and the summit. This will likely go free at 5.11 or a more difficult rating. I think the FA party might have had a wee hangover.
Avoid the loose rocks immediately to the right of the base of this route. The middle tower looks inviting, but a thorough recon did not yield any routes sans a bolt ladder.
LocationRon's Tower is the westernmost or right-hand tower. The FA route ascends the crack on the south side (back side) of the tower.
