LocationThe route goes up the south face. Start up a short gully to reach the face. Pitch 1 faces west. The others face south. Btween pitch 1 and 2 we moved the belay up to where it gets steep again. There are nice cracks and slabs above. We moved the belay between pitches 3 and 4 also. This helps save time. Near the end of the last pitch - where it faces out, move left to the west side to finish up.
Descend a double rope rap to the climber's left of the tower (west/south). Walk the gully, then do one more double rope rap from a single large hex. Descend the rest of the gully.
