The 5.6 "Original Route" can start at the base, or at the ledge on the West after a short 5th class scramble. From this point the climb is only 15-20 ft and traverses right after a few moves to the ledge on the South side of the tower to the anchors.

There is a 5.8 variation that goes straight up from the base on the South side (FA - Baker, Henderson).


The tower is located towards the middle of the climbing area. It isn't obvious that it is a tower, until you are close to the cliffs.


Gear, anchor chains at top.

Pretty sure it was Kermit Ross, not Kermith.
