Description [Suggest Change]

Climb the north side of the obvious tower that sits in front of black bart. Make fun moves past first bolt, reach around roof to clip the second (crux), then pull up on small crimpers past one more bolt and optional mid-sized piece (.5/.75 camalot) to the top.

Protection [Suggest Change]

3 bolts. Optional mid-size cam

I wondered what this route was, as it's not in Hidden Treasures. Jun 27, 2011

Chris, that's odd considering this route is in my copy of Hidden Treasures! Jul 1, 2011
