Roy on lead

Description 

The start is meandering which enables you to gain access to gear, albeit a ways off the deck! Start on the wall moving up to traverse way right above the alcove then back left and into the crack for protection. Move up this crack heading left before mantling up to a crack heading right. This will lead you to the col between the summits. A few more moves will get you on top.

Location 

In the middle of the west face of the tower just left of the alcove.

Protection 

Passive = Tricams, Brown especially, Med. nuts
Active = BD .3,.4,.5 and a #1
Runners needed! One 4' runner also. You will find what you need on top.

A good and fun route that is on some solid rock. My personal favorite sequence is gaining access to the summit.

On 7/7/15 (a very unusually cool July day) Phyllie and I summited Martin's Tower. We found that Cullen Kirk had signed the register after free soloing the line and leaving his cleaning tool behind. Anyone know his email? I will send him the tool.
