Climb the arete (or at least one hand on it), to finish on the first ledge about 20 feet up.

Could then continue upward on the Manticore Face route (or Manticore Upper Arete ).
Or get back down by traversing way right (east) across the Sunny Picnics area to past the Mushroom block, then down the start of the Tour des Picnics route.

warning: The rock on and around this route has not been climbed much yet, and much of the rock is still breakable and loose -- so the belayer and other people should stand far away from underneath the climber.

. . . (Lots of vegetation on this rock as of 2015. Be prepared when climbing to navigate around protruding trees and branches, and dealing with holds slippery with grass, lichen, moss, dirt).


The arete at the right end of Tower Wall, about 25 feet right (southeast) from the Dead Tree Dihedral. At the left side of the Manticore Dihedral in the Sunny Picnics area.


Top-Rope: Makes sense to set top anchor near top of cliff, like the Mancticore Face tree anchor -- need a static line -- and rappel or lower in to the anchor.
