Justin Slagle bustin' a move on Go Ask Alice


A strenuous entry move (crux) onto a steep face leads to easier climbing, and a 5.10A thin face move higher up. This is on the left side of the west face of Pyramid Tower. Rappel to descend


5 bolts, 2 bolt anchor/rap (all 3/8")

Great climb, tough sequence at the start, first bolt is a big reach, second crux stepping onto the upper headwall. When you top out on the ledge, a ways past the last bolt, there's an 8 foot fist size crack (BD #3 or 4) that you can climb or you can go around, easy scramble for another 15 feet and you'll get to the top of the tower. That's where the rap bolts are, the picture on here is a little deceptive where it finishes. Definitely worth doing if you're in the area.

There were 3 bolts on the lower steep face and 2 bolts on the upper slab leading to a bolted rap anchor. The anchor is on the first ledge you reach, no need to go to the top of the tower.
