EASY trad route on the SE corner of the tower to the chains up above "The Tower". Good way to access "The Tower" if you are feeling lazy. Good beginner trad climb.


Easy route up SE corner of tower next to Y-crack.

Easy! Use the chains of the 10's to the left to get down.

Surprisingly fun little route. I'd avoid the block half way up that looks like a potential death block. I took the face to the left which maybe goes at like 5.5 if you completely avoid the death block. Have fun! :)
