Description

Start with the same scary boulder problem as for Strummer, up to a curving flake/crack. Don't fall before you get in your first piece! And don't pull too hard on any of the edges! Once at your first piece, climb, or aid up and to the left through a series of cracks for about 25ish feet. Eventually, you will come to a ledge that will start leading to the other side of the tower. Scoot around the ledge and look up to a face with 2 bolts. Either aid, or climb these bolts to more gear placements. Near the top of the tower, there will be 2 crack systems; on the left is a right-facing corner and on the right is a lightning bolt looking crack. Choose the right (the lightning bolt crack that is). Once at the top of the crack, free climb the last 15 feet to the anchors.

Location

Walk to Strummer and start there.

Protection

Standard desert rack (maybe 2 sets of cams, from your smallest to about a #4bd)

Nice work! I never thought there would be a second route on this formation. Happy to see more people embracing the choss!

I think I screwed up the database here when I entered this, sorry. I intended the tower to be named Strummer and I should have made the tower an area, not a route. The route we did we actually intended named Career Opportunities, for what it's worth. Oct 25, 2016
I can't remember for sure, but I think that this will probably go free at around mid to hard .10? Oct 25, 2015
