Description

Belay about 20 feet above the creek on a good ledge. Follow the crack to a stance below a small overlap, crank the crux, and follow the line of bolts up the steep wall to the anchor - Boulder Canyon guidebook.

This route would be better with more traffic. There is lots of lichen, so wear sunglasses to prevent getting it in your eye when belaying. There are fun finger locks and hand jams when coming off the ledge, be sure not to plug your only jam with a cam at the start. The crux is well protected with bolts, the climbing eases up towards the anchors.

Location

In the middle of the tower, the start is marked by the obvious crack moving up from the ledge. Scramble up the left side where all the daredevils jump off the ledge into the pool below. Be ready for jam boxes (you won't hear much over the roar of the creek) and crowds with Pabst in hand - it's a popular place.

Protection

7 bolts and gear to 2 inches. 2 bolt anchor.
