Description 

Overhanging hand crack starting above the P1 ledge of the North Face route. Start off the tall boulder near the wall below and right of the crack. Follow a ramp (NP) up and right to the start of the crack. Get your first piece in the bottom of the crack and start the business. Excellent hand jams, finger locks and the occasional pocket on the face bring the grade down to 5.10, but the climb is in your face the whole time. The real meat of the climb is 20-30 feet and it's non-stop to the anchors. Bomber pro the whole way once you get into the crack. This is a great route to finish out the afternoon after climbing the North Face route. It gets shade in the corner later in the afternoon and you can rappel from the anchor all the way past the ledge to the ground with a single 60m rope.

Location 

North side of tower, start from P1 ledge of North face route. Rappel back to ledge or to ground.

Protection 

med-large stoppers; cams from Yellow TCU to #4 Camelot. 2-bolt anchor with rap ring on top.
