DescriptionThis is a nice, moderate, afternoon outing on the Bottle Top Tower, pretty cruiser and solid. It is definitely gumby-frendly, (taken with a grain of salt - of course - as all Momument routes should be).
Getting to the base is probably the crux. Mountaineer up the slabs from the Southeast wandering through a line that you have eyeballed up from the bench, thread you way up to the notch between the tower and the land form. You are now at the base of a sweet, unseen hand crack that takes you to the top.
P1: Climb the hand crack right of the chossy chimney for a hundred feet or so. Taking care not to knock one of the huge blocks down as you navigate the overhanging capstone chimney, which is how this route got its name (5.9).
Rap from good anchors.
