Slightly chossy, but not terrible rock with easy moves to the top. A fun location right near the trail and parking lot.


On the southern face of Agathla Tower, right next to the Near Trail

Barring the feathers, probably the quickest access for a last minute climb before heading into George for beer. Super positive holds too. Here's a helmet cam I shot last spring 2013...

Scenic and sunny line with some suspect holds, but still fun. The upper crux can be bypassed on the left.

Really fun route. Good 5.8 climbing with some fun moves in a couple spots to put you over some spots that kind of stick out. Great climb to do in order to catch a beautiful view of the sunset.
