Description

Probably not recommended but was a fun adventure. Climb from the notch on the east side of the formation up a wide chimney with rotten rock. Belay on a large ledgy section just below and east of the summit pinnacle. Climb across and down the ledge system, through an eroding cave, and mantle onto the spine of formation at about the middle of Khrushchev’s pitch three. Clip a bolt and continue to the summit following Khrushchev’s last pitch. Rope drag will be a killer on this pitch. Rap as per Khrushchev.

Location

At the very east side of the Cuban Missile Tower.

Protection

Standard light rack with at least one wired nut for the hangerless bolt on Khruschev’s pitch three
