From the top of the 2nd pitch of Yard Art, the West Face route follows a bolt line that heads left towards and then around the arete of the tower. The Kramar guidebook describes a second anchor near the base of this pitch, but the hangers were gone when we climbed it. The pitch can be easily climbed from the Yard Art belay.

Once around the arete and onto the west face, follow a 4-inch fist crack for 15 feet and then climb steeply up a bolted face and arete onto the summit ridge of the tower.

This pitch has a little bit of slab climbing, a clean fist crack and some very airy face climbing at the top. You top out on a little summit with great views of the Icicle Creek valley - very fun. We rapped back down to one of the Yard Art belays with a 70 m.


Quickdraws, slings, and a single set of cams to #4. I used a 3, 3.5 and 4 on the fist crack, and there are one or two smaller placements before that.

Belayed from the missing hangers closest to the base of the West Face using a couple of nut wires tightened behind the bolts & washers. Rapped down the side of the tower facing Lawn Darts on a 60M rope. Incredible pitch! Jun 30, 2014

Climbed this route in a couple hours yesterday. Rappelled with a 60M rope -- it doesn't get you all the way to the bottom on the last rappel, but within 15 feet... easy scramble.

Great third pitch. Apr 10, 2015

Beware of loose flakes on this one. It seems every year I find new scars. It could use a few more bolts! The rock has that gritty feel to it. Nov 28, 2015
