Description

nice route follows an obvious arete,route starts with some easy scrambling up to the start of the arete,where you have to hand jam in a water groove then pop up to the next positive hold.from there just follow the arete up moderate ground to the top

Location

route is located on the back side of the tower,to find the start look for property line on the rock,start there continue up the arete rap off top

Protection

set of quick draws,3 bolts and anchors at top

i was just up there on 10/25/12 no bolts anywhere on the tower can anyone i dentify the four bolted routes just to the left of the tower ? not in the guide book from what i could make of it. Oct 29, 2012
Are the bolts sound? That is, do I need to bring my own hangars to replace the ones that are missing? Are hangars missing from any of the other routes at this point? Sep 8, 2011

They were removed but, are going to be replaced soon. Jul 11, 2011
I think the hangers might have been removed from the bolts. I've only been to Yellow Bluff once, and I'm not sure I was looking at the right route, but there were a few routes on what I imagine is the "tower" that had bolts but no hangers. Jun 30, 2011
