DescriptionThis is a stunning line up the steepest, central section of the Pagoda Tower. Rock quality, position, and movement give this route all the stars you need. Don't be surprised if you get a few honks and gawkers on this nearly roadside crag.
Start with 3 bolts of face climbing with a tricky move before the mantel onto the ledge. The first crux is right off the ledge with slopers, crimps, and compression to reach a slopey hole. After the slopey hole, continuous and pumpy underclings lead to a final, desperate stab to a cool, pinchy jug at the lip.
Clipping the 2nd bolt off the ledge can be tricky. Shorter climbers have rodeo-clipped this bolt off the ledge. It is best to climb Power Pagoda first and set the draws on Golden Pagoda on your way down.
