Description

This has two wide pitches that will have you sitting on the edge of your seat!

P1. Start in the clean corner that quickly works through the hand sizes. It won't be long, and the crack gets wide - too big for #6 and eventually too big for VG9. Get through this section to a nice ledge/rest. Chimney 20 feet past stacked death blocks to large ledge at half height. Set up belay. I don't know how to rate this pitch, but it seemed pretty hard to us.

P2. Start with a VG9 size crack for 25 feet to a constriction that seems pretty cruxy. Once above, a slender individual can chimney/squeeze for another 80' unprotected to the top. If you are husky, then you'll have to stay on the outside, and you'll most likely fall to your pitiful death. This is a fantastic and beautiful pitch.

P2.1. A couple of moves takes you to the top of the tower.

Location

This is a mile or so past Arch Tower on a prominent ridge full of towers. You are looking for the obvious, hanging offwidth on the sunny side of the formation.

Protection

A standard rack. Make sure you include plenty of wide gear and a small stopper or two.
