  • Description 

    fairly sustained 5.10 climbing or A0. nice little tower, close to town and campground. seems like it should have been climbed before this. there was some evidence of activity low down but nothing up higher or on top. no anchors, carne or rope groves. please weigh in if you have info on this one.


    the tower is obvious from the road and campground. start in the notch just above the arch and climb up that side of the tower. bomber anchors on top.


    7 draws.

    The bolts stop 10 ft shy of the summit, leaving a chossy runout over a little ledge. Any one of the holds could disintegrate on this loosie so pack a couple of cams in the range of off-fingers to wide hands and play it safe.
