After reaching the southwest face of the Tandem Towers, find a corner to the left of the large roof at the shoulder between the towers.
P1. Climb up the thin, overhung corner and pull up into the vertical off-width. Fight the off-width until coming up on a short slab. (5.10, 25m).
P2. From the slab swim up beautiful hand jams as the crack begins to lean to the left. After a couple awkward sections reach a huge sharp ledge. Belay takes #1-4. (5.9, 25m).
P3. Either traverse across the ledge to the center of the shorter tower and and climb up loose rock to the bolted summit or climb straight up to it through more loose rock. (5.7, 5-10m)
note: We climbed the first two pitches in one 50m pitch, but rope drag and sharp rock made this option less than favorable.
Double rope rap off a two bolt anchor puts you on the ground.
