Start at the LARGE undercling flake and climb to ledge. Then up crack. Where Towering Inferno heads left, keep going up. Nice features all the way.

Tons of lichen at the top, somewhat better now.


Obvious large flake on north side of Tower 3.


8 bolts (I think) plus a snap-hook anchor. First bolt is really anti-clothesline so belayer can choose to belay from down on bigger ledge. There is also a keeper down there, but it is really for the North Arete route.
