Geir working the tough stuff...

Description 

Right tower, delicate face climbing requiring a tricky sequence to get through the sustained lower crux. Difficult on-sight, rewarded by superb rock quality and one of the most fun sequences in LD. Took us a while to figure this out, but the rewards are high indeed! Clearing the upper bulges means taking any rest you can find. Runout between the upper bolts.

Location 

On the right leaning tower. See route map.

Protection 

7 bolts.
