Description

This is the only conceivable line on the tower. It lies on the NE corner and therefore receives morning sun. A combination of clean aid and a bolt ladder, the line falls quickly and puts smiles on the faces of those that venture into this area.

After three days and three new towers the drill ran out of juice or was shooting blanks. We had to return the next day to finish this fun romp. Mar 5, 2017
