Description Suggest change

Two out of three dentists agree that this is the easiest way up the tower.  For those who eschew sweet splitters just feet away in favor of something less appetizing.  Perhaps done previously but likely not.  

P1: Up obvious low angle chimney/ off-width to notch on back side of tower.
P2: Tough to protect move to get started in right of the two cracks.  Hands lead to a pod with roof.  Pull through roof into wideness that becomes lower angle a few feet higher.  Go to the summit.

Descent:  Double rope rap to ground on front side.

Location Suggest change

Find Cryptogamic Forest and walk past it to back side of tower.  Kind of north facing.  Obvious from there.

Protection Suggest change

Singles .3-6 with a VG9 being helpful on P2.
