Description 

The route begins on the uphill (south) side of the tower. climb up and past 1-2 bolts then traverse to right to very rotten crack. Belay or continue up to summit. Very poor rock and only good to reach a desert summit w/o much pain. Two ropes needed for descent.

Location 

Enter the wilderness area west of the Arboretum via a dirt road approx 2 miles before the standard parking lot. Drive up several switchbacks and park when a traverse line becomes visible to walk east to the pinnacle.

Protection 

Stoppers & hexes as camming units might make the route fall apart.
