DescriptionThe route starts on the lower left hand side of the tower. Start on the hand crack that travels up and left. From here follow obvious crack systems that basically head straight up.
Belay at ledges with gear anchors.
The last pitch ( crux ) heads right off the belay into a left facing thin corner and finishes on steep jugs.
Decent: Down climb the south face to a ledge with a single pin. Repel off with 2 ropes. A bit more down climbing to a drainage.
There is a slung chock stone in the top of the drainage. I would imagine this tat is no longer trustworthy. Bring extra webbing or you can scramble across the base of the tower finishing with a bit more down climbing to the base of the route.
