The "Channel 6 News Tower" as seen from ...

Description 

The middle of the 3 routes on the "Chanel 6 News Tower" the semi-independent tower immediately down-canyon from the main wall. Starts with 2 bolts worth of 5.7/8 climbing on edges to a huge rest jug. Then it climbs 3 bolts worth of overhanging rock on crimps, edges, pockets, sloping ledges, sidepulls and jugs. Fun and entertaining climbing. Short but physical. Still somewhat sharp too so bring your skin.

Location 

The middle of the 3 routes on the "Chanel 6 News Tower" the semi-independent tower immediately down-canyon from the main wall. Access the base by scrambling down to the terrace/ledge from just below the big boulder that guards the upper canyon.

Protection 

5 camouflaged bolts and chain anchors with hooks.

Just a heads up: We were here 12/25/14 and right-hand bolt at the chains was spinning.

Fixed the loose anchor bolt like a month or more ago. Just needed 1/8 of a turn... Climb safe
