Starting at the left side of the tower's base, This trad line climbs features and hollow cracks to the summit. It was the first route done on the cliff, ground up, in 1995 or so. We initially called it "Never Again" because it scared he crap out of us. Today you can climb it a bit more safely by clipping a couple bolts on the route Sky Raider then moving up and right into the cracks and following features between Sky Raider and Wingman.


Start at a large fir tree at the lower left toe of the Black Tower buttress. Climb up the gully through a bush, up features to a series of crack features that ascend the center of Black Tower.


Gear to 3". Rappel chains on summit, or scramble off and descend to right.
