2 pitches. P1, start up the thin finger crack 20 feet up canyon from the Red Tail Tower. Step left into the dihedral, up the face crack and reach right at the small roof, make a big move right to gain the anchor shared by Perkolator (single 11ish move). P2. Climb P2 of Perkolator-- through a 10+ roof, up nice cracks to a huge chimney, up the 5.9 off-width on the left side of the chimney.

This is a very fun way to the top of the cliff at a moderate grade.


Walk around Red Tail Tower and look for the short finger crack just a few feet up canyon from it.


Doubles/triples in finger sizes through hand sizes, #4, #5, #6 for the wider stuff up high.

At one time this route split just past the roof. You could clip a bolt on the face and finish on Lightning Road rather than do the off width. The bolt has been removed. Dec 21, 2015
