Description [Edit]

Chossy climbing up the southeast ridge leads to the summit. The easiest known climbing line to the top.

Location [Edit]

From the base of the south side of the tower, start climbing up a short chossy 5.3 cliff band. After the short cliff band, continue exploring up class 3-4 terrain on the south side of the tower. ~150 feet directly below the summit block, straight forward access to the top is halted. Scramble to the southeast ridge (class 4) and once on the southeast ridge, do a short descent to a bench around to the east face. From the bench on the east face, scramble up ledges/chimneys and traverse back to the southeast ridge. ~50 feet east of the southeast ridge is a crack system leading to the top. Climb the crack, 5.6, to the summit.

For the descent, scramble 50 feet south from the summit to a large boulder. Rappel back down the southeast ridge route to the east face ledges.

Expect easy chossy adventure climbing.

Protection [Edit]

Small rack. Slings for anchors
