Description 

Same as for Snow Creek Wall. East facing mostly. No crowds here. Excellent rock, just rarely climbed, expect lichen and moss.The Tower blends into the wall and is hard to distinguish from the wall behind it, if you are at the base of Outerspace it can be seen. Usually on a warm spring day you could climb here, expect snow on the approach, pretty much true for the fall, at least till end of Oct.

Getting There 

Easy traverse from the right side of Snow Creek Wall. We descend down to Pearly Gates from here pretty easy as well. About 1 hr 45 min. from Snow Creek trailhead on Snow creek trail to base of Snow creek wall.

Rock Climbing Photo: 1st pitch

East Face 5.10+ 6b+ 21 VII+ 20 E3 5b  Washington : Central-East Cascades, Wena... : ... : Easter Tower
The main attraction here is the challenging 1st pitch. 3 stars for 1st pitch, 2 stars for upper 2 pitches if cleaned. This pitch was cleaned by Shaun Johnson in 2012. It is also the pitch that gives the route the 10c/d rating. A very thin seam provides some descent pro and excellent climbing with a leftward traverse crux mid way up. It is somewhat run out above this, then larger gear works and you top out on a large ledge.Pitch 2: 5.9, also some great climbing off the ledge on your right follow...[more]   Browse More Classics in Washington
