J. Howland sightseeing at the 2nd bolt. Erin Neff ...


A full value 10c with a hard start and some tricky business up high. I thought the cruxes were not as marked in the book (c. 4th bolt) but rather at the beginning and between 6th & 7th bolts


Start on pillar on left side of Big Tower formation. Belayer can belay from beneath and left of pillar or from the pillar (using the first bolt as an anchor).


7 bolts.

I really liked this route! Only negative was one hard clip up high the rest wast bolted perfectly. Oh and what's with the anchor, very lame.

Lame anchor issue has been rectified. Mussy hooks and chain added to equalize existing anchors and make it easier to lower off. This climb is sustained! Definitely a bit old school.
