Description

Aka "Soup Mountain", this little sport climb is hidden on the north face of John's Tower, about 100 feet right of Becker. It is still dirty and a bit lichen-y, but it has some balancy moves and a nice base for large groups or kids.

Scramble up to the bottom of a shallow, flaring flake, and then either lay-back or jam your way up surprisingly steep rock to a big ledge. Then it's 8 feet of nice hand-crack climbing to a solid anchor on the edge of John's Tower.

Location

Find the trail heading out of the campsite at 707AF towards the west end of the north face of John's Tower. You'll hit a barbed-wire fence quickly. Follow that to a boulder and scramble over some wood fence posts. Then hike directly to the wall in front of you, looking for a left-leaning flake covered in bolts. It's hard to miss.

Protection

6-7 bolts, with three VERY close together in the crux. Big two-bolt anchor for rapping and TRing. If you are a nervous or new leader, a red cam might make the crack at the top a little less scary.
