At the base of the tower there are two bolts drilled in scary rock for a belay anchor. Climb the first 20 feet on scary and crumbly 5.6 with no protection to a ledge with good pro. From the ledge climb excellent 5.7 with pockets and good holds to the top. Bolts for anchor/rappel are on top.


One single rope rappel from the top of the tower to the base. To get down the cliffs, we rappelled with two ropes on the side of the cliff. Two 60 meter ropes. Looking back towards the approach, the cliffs to the right. Burned a few slings and links. From the long rappel was a walk off. Conversly, you could leave fixed ropes from the rappel approach and jug up them.


Rack of .5-3 camalot work well.
