Description

A fun climb in two parts: the lower dihedral, and the upper face. The upper part is a little harder (5.8) if you stay by your gear, a little easier (5.7) if you traverse out to the right toward the nose.

Location

From the saddle connecting Great Tower and Sun-top Tower, scramble down to the north. Alternatively walk up from Sun-top.

Descend by downclimbing the back (West).

Protection

Better than it looks, but very specific on the upper face. Take small to medium nuts (1/4-1/2 inch) and a small (~1/4 inch) cam.
