Description

There are some large disconcerting blocks to negotiate. The rock is soft and the colors are splendid. The chimney at the top is without gear until the very end. Here you will find a connected pocket(s). Sling this for your only pro in the chimney.

There was (some body in the register absconded with this piece of history) a fixed pin about half way up. This is the only sign of any activity. We do not know if this was where they bailed from, or, being that there was no anchor on the summit, what went on. If I am contacted regarding the details, I will gladly give up the FA.

Location

West side of second tower in obvious maw.

Protection

See photo and bring lots of runners. You will find what you need on top.

I actually quite enjoyed this. If you're skinny you can chimney behind the sketchy 5.9 entry crux and then the rest of the route is pretty much secure 5.7!
The summit register is soaked unfortunately. Feb 15, 2016

I tried to "fix" that register on 4/13/17. Hope you find it in good order now. Apr 15, 2017
