Description 

The left of the 3 routes on the "Chanel 6 News Tower" the semi-independent tower immediately down-canyon from the main wall. Start all the way around the left corner, traverse rightward and up on a hand rail, grovel past the 2ed bolt, then weave back and forth as you make your way up. Finishing using the right side of the final headwall is easier than the left.

Location 

The leftmost of the 3 routes on the "Chanel 6 News Tower" the semi-independent tower immediately down-canyon from the main wall. Access the base by heading back down the "rock stairs" part of the approach to the cave-like area at the base of the route. Also a good place to wait out a storm, so long as too much water is not coming down the canyon.

Protection 

6 bolts and chain anchors with hooks.

A couple people have asked what this route is called so here it is. We did not publish it when we published the rest of the crag as we were unsatisfied with the bolt placement at the start, as some people have mentioned, and were hoping to figure out an alternative that would still protect the crux rock-over/up move at the start and keep you off the jagged blocks on the ground below it.
