Description 

Great moderate route to the top of the Clocktower. The route sucks 2-3'' cams. You can use them on the first part, you will want to save a few (at the very least save one 3'') to secure the crux. The crux starts right after the ledge, the protection is good but I found it a bit strenuous to place the cams - keep 2-3'' ready; because quite low above the ledge and there is no visual contact with the belayer it did not feel safe for the first few moves.

Location 

Starts on the left size of the North face of the Clocktower, after the ledge continues on the right side of the Northeast side (as for Wedding Day).

Protection 

Gear to 3"
Sling anchor (2016)
