Located on the Upper Wall of the Clock Tower, this route is the 2nd route from the far right side of the face. The first bolt will be obvious as it is almost on the ground, but could come in handy. A bouldery start, leading to a mantle brings you to the PG-13 part. If you are short, (under 5'9") clipping the 3rd bolt will require you to make an extra move and would indeed be a groundfall. Be careful. The upper face is a jug haul as stated in the guidebook.


8 bolts - 2 bolt anchor.

This is a fun route. I was surprised by the strenuous work required to pull over the two roofs.

Really fun and worthy route. Good solid 5.10 pump. A little tentative at first clipping the third bolt, but found a really solid hold and it turned out to be reasonable. The crux holds are right below the second overhang and after a high step on the big ledge the holds above are very positive. The steep headwall above has good holds. I moved left a little, almost over to the next route, and then finishing up on very solid and satisfying jugs. Don't miss it.
