  Mar 27, 2016 - Fun climb, actually didn't have any trad gear on this one. Which probably wasn't the safest, I strung a sling over a big jug about 15' up, and then sport climbed the rest. Two more bolts would make this a lot more assessable, so I get the reason for the t

This is the finished product of the climb. The view from the top is absolutely phenomenal. A 360 degree view of the swell from this standpoint. To access the top of the tower, walk west from the top of the climb and around onto the west face, there is a small canyon that will take you to the top, there is some fourth class hiking here, so bring approach shoes. I looked in the carin and couldn't find the summit book... bummer.   This is the rappel from the top of the climb, it goes directly through the west window blind of the tower. I packed two 70m ropes the entire way up and used them both to rappel the entire route. However, if I did it again, I would take one single 70M rope and do two rappels. Only for the sake of weight in my backpack. If you use the first set of rap anchors you come to (larger chains, vertical bolt placement) (meaning the anchor is built with one bolt directly above the other, with a chain reaching to the bottom) you will be able to do two rappels with a 70m rope. 60m maybe... don't quote me on it. There is another set of anchors at the top of the climb just west of the rap anchors we used, I have no idea what they are for. They looked less desirable to get to.The second rap anchors look exactly like the first and sit on a good ledge.   Second bolt anchors on the approach. These are not the most useful things in the world on the hike up. On the way down, however, they are key. Once you climb the slab in the middle of the second section of cliffs (carin at the top). There is tat on a bush next to the carin, and the rap anchors are about 15 feet west of that. The rappel is kind of hard, so be ready for your backpack to pull you over.    First bolt anchor on the approach. To find this, walk up the BOTTOM of drainage till you see two carin, turn in between the carin and head for the shortest section of the cliff band. I put up a small carin on the top of the cliff by the anchor. I free climbed this crack in my approach shoes, placing protection would be an excellent idea. If you don't like the hike from the bottom to the drainage to the cliff band... go home. It does not get any easier.   This may not be the easiest approach. I drive a commuter car (07 Toyota Camry SE) I had to park on the main road and approach from the west. Mexican Mountain Rd was washed out and impassable. The route we took starts up the main drainage at the base of the west window blind, it becomes extremely hard, extremely steep, and extremely stressful. The hardest part of the whole ordeal was getting to the climb. There are a couple sets of anchors on the approach that I will try to point out. You may need to place gear to get passed the first set of cliff bands. I did not. I free climbed in my approach shoes and then pulled up our backpacks and belayed my partner. Most of this approach is fourth class and some of it is fifth so be prepared to free climb some crack and a lot of slab. Hiking shoes are basically a must. This is not a hike for Chacos.
