The blocky tower is visible on the right as one enters the canyon. See Pic.

P1) Starts at a slab on the front part of the formation. Climb about 20' to a bolt. Pass the bolt and move left passing a good thread. Continue up left to a groove, which is followed(wires for pro). At the top of the groove move left to the arete. Follow this to a bolt, then up a crack then back to another bolt at the base of an obvious corner(crux). Follow the corner past two bolts and a 2" cam. Then up easy chimney to a step up left past a bolt to a fine summit. 200' 5.9.

Descent. Rap into the gap, and then a two rope rap from double anchors on the other side of the tower.


One Finger Canyon


Cams 1/2" to 3". Long slings to help rope drag. A set of wires.
