Boulder up the flared crack through the bulge on the right side of the face. Continue up the face and rounded arĂȘte on solid patina plates.


Southeast arĂȘte of Rock Candy Tower. Ten feet right of Werner's Werthers.


4 bolts & chains.

Decent climb with the crux before the first bolt. I found it balancy and awkward at the start. It might be harder for shorter leaders. No stars if compared to Werner's one. Nov 27, 2016

Somehow I managed to climb on this twice without doing the Werner's route so can't comment on that. However, shorter leaders can rest easy as I am 5'6 and found the crux (agreed right before first bolt) to be manageable and the climb quite fun. Dec 31, 2016

If you use the fire pit at the base as a cheat stone, it might only be 5.6++ Apr 14, 2017
