Description

Proof that old men can still get it up, or get up it. A vanload of candy still won't entice most children to this acquired taste testpiece. Good, if fugly rock is bettered by Alzheimer's proof gear. So shady, it stays shady almost all year.

Pitch 1. Hump off the ground into the thin gropers crack. Creep right at a bolt and put your hands all over the lumps. Enjoy meaty jams, but at the uglies, tip toe to the safety of a bolted belay in a school zone. 5.10, 80'.

Pitch 2 Regain your youth and vitality and bar fight up the baggy hand crack. Kids need not apply. When the fun ends, clip a few bolts and lurch up unlovable munge to a bivy shelf. Carefully steal to the "Creation of Man" vortex and clip the junk proof anchor. Marvel on the summit and the depths of your depravity. 5.10+ (80's Era), 70 feet.

Location

Start just right of the north chimney. Look for a splitter big hand crack 100' up. Rap route. The tower is really hard to see until you put your aviators on at the base.

Protection

1x Fingers to manly fingers. 2x Thin hands to beyond fists. one old beat up and chopped rope to rap route.
