Description

A great way to the top of Entrance Tower! This old school fun route goes up the northeast face. Start in the chimney up to a bolt on the northeast face, then step left into the crack system. Head straight up, through a short left-facing dihedral and clip a second bolt. The crux lies just after the bulge, where you must make a committing move up and to the left. Continue on easier ground to the top.

Yes, a very fun route that's more diverse than the fun climbs on the Coop, for example. Nice eye, Marcy, and thanks again for sharing! Was really fun to see this go up and I'll get you the 100 or so pics I have of you waltzing up the FA! Mar 27, 2010

This is a fun climb! The rock is of good quality and there are a variety of interesting moves. The climbing itself is easy for the grade, but the gear can be tricky. The leader has to make two or three moves past the crux before more gear can be found, so make sure you are climbing solidly at the grade.

The name is derived from a large hawk that was nearby while we were establishing the route and doing the FA. Mar 24, 2010
