This is one bolt protected route up the middle of the small tower to the anchor.

Climb the left side of tower in a hand crack and traverse left to a stance. Clip bolt on bulge and reach high to the next ledge. Climb thin finger crack to top.

Rap from 2 bolt anchor.

This is good fun with nice jamming in between great rests.


On the left side of Lower Mothers, this is the first route that you walk past from the main trail. It is best to belay the TR from the right side of the tower, otherwise the rope gets caught in a crack at the very top.


Bring less than fingers to hand size gear.

Great addition to the crag! Fun Moves and good protection. I used a few larger sizes of C3s and a small nut at the crux. Jan 29, 2012

I put the route up on a sunny day that turned into a snow storm and then a rain storm and then sunny again. Good times. Enjoy. Nov 30, 2011
