Description

This two pitch adventure route is accessed from the Catapult / Arms Control anchor.

P1: From the Catapult / Arms Control anchor - Climb a cool easy crack up to a horizontal finger crack, traverse right 10 feet to reach another crack. Negotiate a large loose block to reach an easy wide crack up to the base of the tower. Travere right about 20 feet along the base of the tower to reach a chimney that splits the tower. (5.10a ~ 70 feet)

P2: Chimney up to the summit passing an old but decent bolt about 35 feet up. (5.6 ~60 feet)

Location

Starts from the Catapult / Arms Control anchor.

Protection

Standard rack to 3", a 4" piece can be placed but is not necessary. There is no good way to make an anchor at the end of the first pitch in the chimney, wedge yourself in the chimney. Bolts on top of the tower. Rap off either west to the Tower of Cleanliness notch or east to reach the top of Natural Selection. Bring sling or cord material to leave at the rappel anchor.
