Description

The logical progression if you wish to get to the top of the tower from the top of Orange Crack if you can't climb 5.11. After climbing Orange Crack's first pitch step right around the corner (Less bold individuals may wish to stay roped in for this) and to the base of the back wall. Looking up and you can spot a bolt ~9 feet off the ground and one at around 70 feet. This is Generation X.

Location

There are rap anchors at the top of Gen X that you can use to get back to Orange Crack's end and rap all the way back down. You can also climb the final pitch of the tower to top out and then rap the backside.

Protection

2 bolts and gear from Blue TCU's to a #4 Camalot. I don't think doubles are necessary except in the smaller sizes (<#1 red Camalot)

I personally think this thing is hard for 5.9 but others opinions might vary. May 6, 2013
