DescriptionThis is a really fun route with great moves that will keep you on your toes.
Start by scrambling to a large sloping ledge near a right-facing corner. There is a very thin crack in the dihedral that will hardly accept your smallest pro. Climb the short dihedral placing marginal protection to a good undercling that will take a hand-sized cam. From the undercling, traverse left following a mix of new and old fixed gear.
The traverse on steep rock is the crux, but is well protected. After the traverse, climb straight up past two more bolts and continue to the anchors.
LocationLocated on the N side of the Bell Tower. Start near the middle of the face in a shallow right-facing corner and make your way up and left to the notch near the Needle's Eye.
One 60 m rope will just barely get you down off the N side. Rapping off the S side with a single 60 will also put you on a ledge below another highly recommended route, For Whom the Bell Tolls.
