DescriptionThis is a huge tower located on a neck cutoff of Fisher Creek that somehow was unclimbed until now. Expect an adventure.
P1. Start on the northwest side, climb up to the left of the large chimney, and then crawl over to get started. Follow cracks up through sporty/loose climbing until you make it into the chimney. Continue up and behind some chockstones until you reach a large ledge in an alcove where you can build a belay with a few hand-sized pieces at a bedding seam, 5.9.
P2. Climb out of the alcove, and traverse around into a big chimney system. Continue up to a ledge and through a small slot where you can build a belay with a #6 Camalot. 5.8
P3. Climb the offwidth/chimney, and traverse right around some choss up to a slope. Follow to the right into a chimney, and end at a the main deck. Belay with some small cams or a meat belay. 5.9
P4. Summit pitch. Climb the tallest, mousiest looking summit. Aid on small pro up to the top, clipping one drilled angle on a blank section. The summit anchor is a sling wrapped around a bomber block. 5.8 C2
