Description

Start up the central portion of the Hidden Tower heading up a short crack and odd moves, eventually turning left around the arete through a hard sequence. The difficulties then ease a bit until the anchors.

-This climb has a lower anchor and an extension that rolls left around the arete yet again. My partner and I thought 11c (slightly easier than the 4 climbs to the left), but we only climbed to the first anchor. Maybe the extension around the corner left raises it to 12 (didn't try it), or maybe we're uncalibrated sandbaggers.
-Stick clip the high first bolt or bring a large nut or thin hands-size cam for the start.
-Kind of hard to read this one, as far as when and where to step left. Mar 23, 2014
