Description Suggest change

Good little 2 pitch route in morning/early afternoon sun on the east end of North Mesa just before the end of the hiker's trail to the saddle.

P.1: Up obvious bolt line to fingers and stemming. Continuous 5.10. Go left to anchor when it steepens, widens, and turns poorer rock quality.

P.2: Up the wide, easier corner with huecos and intermittent cracks to top of tower.

Location Suggest change

At the top of the tourist trail head right and get up on the limestone band. Traverse right to start of obvious corner at bolt line.

2 raps with 1 60m rope.

This route is on the opposite side of the tower from The Dong, an old 5.11 gruntfest

Protection Suggest change

Nuts, doubles of small to hand-size cams. Three #3 Camalots, two #4s, and one #5. 4 or 5 draws and a few extendable runners.
