This exceptional route starts on the southeast corner where gear is a bit tricky but steadily improves as you cross over the shoulder to the obvious crack in the small left-facing dihedral on the east side. The route takes a "J" bend on ever steepening rock creating a bit of rope drag if not well runnered. It is possible to get to the chain anchor and bring up a second to do the much more difficult three bolt face above (see the route "Evolutionary Leap").
This route is on the Togo Tower's southeast corner and east face.
Take pairs of cams from small to a #2 and one BD #3 along with four or five shoulder length slings and a couple of long runners. This gets you to chains.
