Pitch 1, 110', 5.10
Climb past ledges to a bomber #2 Camalot at 15', and mantle sloping ramp. Stem or bridge past three bolts being careful around a couple chossy areas here and there... Continue up past a steep and solid crack crux, and then enjoy thoughtful 5.9 crack climbing with sculpted face holds to an exposed perch and a lovely bolted belay.
Pitch 2, 45', 5.6
Climb the beautifully sculpted jugs on airy face left of the belay. There is a good #.5 at the diagonal break, then continue scampering your way around a neat ramp and to the chasmy summit. For now, we used the Sun King Direct anchor on the north side for belay anchors, and the rappel down. Rappel 90' to the base of the route SKD then a short scramble around the front of the tower brings you back to your packs.
A beautiful line, a little adventury, and stunning views. One could think they were in City of Rocks, ID if they were to let their mind drift a bit...
