thx Eva for the rap anchor,
tat in good condition on this date. Bitch of an approach but a great adventure on mostly good rock.
1st pitch starts on the west side of the sub-tower 5.10 fingers to fists.
Spicy start to the 2nd pitch- one bolt is nice but too low to keep you off the deck- a second one would really give you some confidence as the shitty RPs are good enough for body weight but I doubt they'd take a fall, then burly hands to ow splitter!
3rd pitch gaping OW: wish I'd brought the #6 but it may have been too small!! 3 drilled pins (one is shallow- tie it off close!) then as you commit to the final crux you have a large flake siting in the crack I placed a red and blue camalot on either side of it and equalized it in situ (it would have been better to do so with a large hex) Still committing to move past.
Gear recommendation: Double set to #4 with triples of #2 & #3. Single #5 & #6, small nuts and at least one large hex. 2 60M's

|This is a pretty little summit, pitch 2 is worth the hike. As of March 2013 , only 1 pin on the 2nd pitch traverse, and wobbly chockstone is quite terrifying on pitch 3. If your going to the top, have your senses up, in my opinion that block belongs on the ground. There is a chain anchor at the end of the second pitch, but its ~130' to the ground, I don't think a 70M would make it. The summit features a rap station off of a spindly tree, and requires 2 70M to make the ground.|

|We added two bolt anchor just below the summit. No more crappy tree rappel. Bring tat and two sixty meter ropes, which will bring you to the ground in one rappel. Feb 16. Second pitch is wow!|
