Description

Climb up the center of the face using good positive holds the entire way. It is a bit pumpy for the grade but offer several good rests. Fun route, good choice for a warm-up on the tower.

The rock appears to be loose and blocky from the ground but the route offer solid rock the entire way.

Location

Located on the right(south) side of the Dark Tower.
To reach the dark tower continue left on the trail after reaching the scree field. It is the only obvious tower.

Protection

7 bolts to Rap anchors

Fun pumping climb. Getting the 5th clip was quite hard (5.10+/5.11-). I think a large jug hold has broken off since the FA.

(comment added 2 years later) After returning to the route and being schooled on the sequence, I have to retract my comment above. Nothing has broken and the moves through the 5th clip are 5.10b. Jun 18, 2013
