Description 

This is the direct finish to "No Way Down". A double direct version is in Sven's guidebook as "Tyrolean Tower" and starts at the "Southeast rounded corner" of the tower and is rated at 5.10d. I looked at the corner and didn't see any pro whatsoever so I led this version instead.

Location 

Front and center on the tower.

Protection 

TR or Trad. Good pro to the over-hang then "R" to the top. There is gear near the top in a see-through crack in the back of a block. I.E. the block could pull. Also, on the left corner there is a jug that can be palmed on but flexs when pulled out ward.
