Climb arête left of Lichen Attack Crack (just left of the Leaning Tower). Devious and balancy with slopers and body tension. Stays challenging almost to the chains.


Approach per Leaning Tower


6 QDs to a two-bolt anchor with chains.

Great Climb! Very unique movement and holds. Rock quality is still a bit marginal at the bottom but should continue to clean up. Feb 16, 2015

Yes willam your climb is amazing! It would be true New Mexico classic if it was not right next to the tower! It was like climbing a 30' tuffa arête! Great job and what is it's name? Apr 17, 2011
