The Light Bender Tower aka Brian's Buttress, is the cleanest and most splitter multi pitch feature on the entirety of the WOE! The first known efforts to master this formation began early 2015 by local Urban Legend Crusher Brian Spiewak, after finding what seemed to be this 600' pillar of an arete to the sky on google earth. After a quick recon and several partners later, he struck gold by conquering the three most significant lines on the formation!!!

Getting There 

Same as the rest of the WOE. Just pass the Manta Buttress you will be confronted with a mini 40' tall slab, separating the base of The Manta Butt and The Light Bender jetting out into the gully. Just beyond this the Bitchen Arete to the sky will appear with a large old growth evergreen growing directly off from its base. Welcome to The Light Bender!!!
