DescriptionBest pocket route of its grade in the Catalinas. The hardest part about this route is settling on which jugs to use. A low crux gives way to shamefully large pockets on the upper face.
With a standard rack it is possible to continue up from the slab left of the anchors. Climb the bulge, then left, then up through bulges to the "high-point" anchors on the pinnacle. A single 70M rope will get you back to your pack. Might be a good idea to bring extra webbing for the anchor.
(Please note that the rock quality rapidly deteriorates higher above this ledge. The final few feet of the tower is not actually attached. It is not recommended to attempt to gain the true summit.)
