On the more dramatic tower, in in the middle / back of the tooth (farthest from La Paz). Well-bolted all the way to the top. Attempted as a trad climb but is not well-protected (though it could obviously be done).


Bolts with fully equipped anchor. WARNING: do not rappel off the three bolts attached to a rock slightly below the summit (I believe these can also be identified by the stuck caribiner in one of the bolts). This rock is unstable and liable to fall, taking with it all three bolts. We have placed a locking caribiner on the actual rappel anchor which is slightly above it, consisting of two bolts and a beefy sling / one mallion on the right-sided bolt. Also beware of loose rock below this anchor... easy to rain on your belayer.
