Description

The middle of the 3 routes on the "Chanel 6 News Tower" the semi-independent tower immediately down-canyon from the main wall. Starts with 2 bolts worth of 5.7/8 climbing on edges to a huge rest jug. Then it climbs 3 bolts worth of overhanging rock on crimps, edges, pockets, sloping ledges, sidepulls and jugs. Fun and entertaining climbing. Short but physical. Still somewhat sharp too so bring your skin.

Location

The middle of the 3 routes on the "Chanel 6 News Tower" the semi-independent tower immediately down-canyon from the main wall. Access the base by scrambling down to the terrace/ledge from just below the big boulder that guards the upper canyon.

Protection

5 camouflaged bolts and chain anchors with hooks.
