The bottom 15' is a walk up, 5.2 maybe. After that there is a nice crack to climb. The crack is about 20' long. It is challenging.


Detached tower at the end of the Horse Rampart. 40 ft past Via Apia. It is on the south east corner of the detached block.


Medium sized cams would work well in the crack.

Jams were a little tight for me, but very solid - good because the feet aren't ideal! More comfortable for smaller hands?

There is a pinched down section about 1/4 way up that is full of dirt/needles/dust so if you try a lead of Mama Smuckers you may wanna rap down and do a sweep job. It sure made the thing feel a bit harder last weekend when approching from the bottom trailing the rope and with cams a hang'n and ready to fire in. Plus.... it got my nice showered skin all dirtied up and grit got in my eyes...
