Longest route on tower. Crux is towards the top. The most solid/easily protected line on the tower. NU says 5.5 so thats what I listed it as. Felt as hard as some 5.7s in the canyon


north west face. climb the face using the arete, watch for choss, my partner pulled a cantaloupe sized rock off.


Not great placements. Some good nuts. There is an old piton you can clip 2/3 up on the arete. Don't need much gear because its so short. Small cams. Wrap down from two biners in the slings wrapped around the block on top. Bring webbing/slings if you don't trust the stuff up there (it looks like its been there a while but my partner and I rapped off it today)
