Description 

Follows an amazing line up the golden coloured tower near the center of Hoffman Peak. P1 - Follow an obvious crack to a gear belay (5.7). P2 - Move right, climbing easy knobs, until it reaches a somewhat rotten crack. Follow the crack to the top of the tower. Build an anchor amongst the boulders (5.6) P3 - Down climb abit form the notch and gain the slabby face. Move past three bolts, over an easy rough to a bolted chain anchor. Rappel down the adjacent route ( 2 ropes) or scramble to the summit - 400 feet of 3rd class.

There is also an easy walk-off.

Location 

Starts up the obvious crack on the tower, you can;t miss it!

Protection
