Description 

Lots of thoughtful interesting face climbing.

Start under a small alcove, up a few feet on positive holds, than delicate traverse left into center of face. Roughly straight up from there (avoiding easier climbing on Johnsons or Ogre Arete).

Location 

The face between Johnsons and Ogre Arete routes, at a small alcove below some orange-ish rock with the "arrowhead" about mid-way up.

Protection 

Top-Roping: Can construct trad anchor near top of cliff by first walking west horizontally from base of Tower Wall past Three Bears and Daves Wall, then turn full Right onto trail up rocky slope, then follow trail gentler a short ways, finally bear right off trail to top of Tower Wall.

Protection for Trad leading is not very good: at best perhaps R.

The gear on the bottom half of the climb is there but only in select spots. If you don't see the spots, you may risk a ground fall. However if you get some gear in, it should be generally good. The route is there, keep climbing. Steeper than you think judging from the Tower Wall.
