Description 

This fine outing climbs the main face ( facing highway)of the penthouse pillar. Start just right of center below some cracks. Clip a bolt and move up a short face, clip another bolt then into the crack, good #2/3 camalot here. A long sling is advisable then move left out through the bulge, bolt , and onto the face above. Move left and up, bolt, pass a flake on right then up,to under cling flake and another bolt. Move left slightly to base of crack, then up it with a couple good small to medium pieces. The crack fads out onto the blunt, slabby arête above. Make sustained, thin ,smeary moves up this past two bolts then the anchor....yahoo!

Location 

Two bolts and chain on top, single rope rap to the ground.

Protection 

Mixed bolts and gear up to #3 camalot.
