A great & bold climb on the left side of Tower of Babel.

P1) climb up cracks on the right side of the huge roof, working left and up on amazing giant chickenheads and tufa-like granite features. Clip a 1/4" bolt at the very last stance and bust out through 20' of flaky, sandbagged slab to a ledge. #3&4 cams required for anchor. Felt about 5.10b/c R
P2) 30' of unprotected 5.8 slab to a bolt, then traverse left to gain the pancake flake. Up and over the flake to a gear belay above a tree. 5.9
P3) climb the main feature on the face - a right leaning solitary crack system - to a nice ledge and gear belay 5.8
P4) traverse right into the corner chimney, up and over a roof to a belay atop the tower. 5.8 or 5.9. One can scramble up a few hundred feet to the summit from here or easily descend to the south.


Doubles to 3", 1x4", many long slings for tie-offs.
