DescriptionClimb the ever steepening tower on very unique chert, sharp edges, and fossilized rock up to a rap anchor/midway station (5.8ish). From here follow the line of bolts on the right (left bolted line goes at .11c) up into the exposed steepness, and a short edgy crux before making the chains just shy of the summit (.10b). The towers summit is a bit chossy, but you can soak in some beautiful views & wild exposure while on the very small summit plateau.
LocationThe Northwest face of the tower (left side when viewing it from the wash below) has four bolted lines, this one being the second line from the right. Start on top of a large block that makes up the lower right potion of this face.
Desent- single rope rap from summit to the midway anchor, from here rap over onto the southwest face (60m get you on top of a large boulder, 70m makes the ground, partial free rap).
