Description 

Ceramic Tower is a quick tick up some junky rock to a fine summit.

Start on the down canyon side, on the right side of the tower. Traverse to the left until you reach a short dihedral that'll get you moving up. This could all go free fairly easy, but at the top of the dihedral, there's a nice, loose block or two. I used the assistance of a cam to help move past those.

Location 

As you're walking down canyon from the upper trailhead, this will be the furthest left tower of the group of three on your left.

Protection 

Light rack, mostly small cams
