Description

Walk around to the back of the tower from the roadside (against the cliffside 50 feet behind you) This amazing tower route climbs in 1 extended pitch or 1 pitch and a 2nd shorty to the top. Follow the obvious crack for the first 20 feet and move over a bulge above that following more cracks to a short dihedral (optional belay for rope drag) and follow up to summit. Enjoy the view!

Protection

trad with cold shut anchors at the top on summit block.
