Grunt your way up the West Chimney to the "Red Ledge" described elsewhere. Traverse South (right) underneath T-1 and face climb pleasant but somewhat fractured rock, and then the arete, directly to the sharp summit of Tower One. It is two pitches with a 50 meter rope, but it could be done in 1 long pitch with a 70 meter rope.


Hike up the West gully past the start for Yellow Spur and look for the prominent West Chimney. That is start of the climb.


Standard Eldorado rack including some small wired nuts and a few smaller cams. No anchor at top; use gear anchor.
