Direct Southeast is another great 5.11 finger crack at the Tower. Pitch one is small fingers with intricate lie-backing, trust a foot and escape to the arete or stay in the crack the whole way (90 ft). Pitch two continues up the sustained finger crack with a defined crux at about 100 ft, the climbing then becomes easier and opens up to a nice hand crack (130 ft).
Rappel Bon Homme Variation
Good protection, small stoppers and cams, hand size pieces for the top of pitch two, a couple fixed pins on each pitch, bolted anchors for pitch one, pitch two requires a #2, #3, and #4 camalot for an anchor.

This is a great route. It has numerous difficult moves but has some rests in spots. Both pitches can be linked together quite readily with a 70m rope. A few anchoring options in the meadows are limited, but you can also use Walt Bailey Memorial's bolts.

The first pitch on this route is short well protected and locker. If you are not feeling like doing the whole climb, just this pitch is pretty phenomenal and has a rap station. Soft 11a.

A #3, #4 and #1 camalot worked great for me to make an anchor just left of the Walt Bailey bolts. I wouldn't recommend using the Walt Bailey bolts as an anchor as they are too far to the side. On the route I placed many small cams, offset cams, and some medium and small nuts, and cams up to .75 camalot. For larger gear a single #1 and #3 seemed sufficient. Linking the pitches made for a mega classic pitch and avoids the hanging belay! Overall the route felt in the same character as Hollywood and Vine, just harder.
