DescriptionStart on the gully on the south westside of the tower. Hike 10-15 minutes up the gully until you see a large tree leaning against the face. Start about 15 feet up the gully from the tree on the face.
Pitch 1: start out climbing the face. The face gets lower angle and leads to a large ledge with a tree on it. Belay at the tree. 5.8.
Pitch 2: from the tree, climb straight up the gully to another large ledge (easy climbing) to a knife edge ridge. Climb up the ridge a ways and set a belay at another ledge on the ridge. 5.4.
Pitch 3: keep climbing the ridge until another large ledge below a face with a crack splitting the face. 5.4.
Pitch 4: climb the crack that splits the face up to another large ledge and traverse to the summit. Really fun pitch!! 5.6.
Descent: downclimb from the summit to the south. You will be able to see some cord wrapped on some good blocks. A single rope rappel lands you on a ledge to where you can walk to the gully. Follow the gully to the creek.
LocationCross the creek via a log near the pullout. Hike to the right of the the tower to the gully.
