Description 

Long reaches at the bottom lead to a mix a good and fair rock in the middle to nice finish. All routes on this tower share same anchor.

Main tower with three lines. This is the right most line.

Extremely reachy at the bottom, 2 of the shorter people in our group had a pretty frustrating time getting through the first set of moves. Once past the big 3 moves at the bottom the rock above is sketchy and dirty as hell. I understand that it will clean up but there was what seemed to be a higher than expected number of holds that had that lovely hollow knock test to them. I'd avoid it if you are a 10 climber but if you are there for Hueca Del Sol, you could easily top rope it with a redirect just below the big blob flake that is on Hueca. If you are a 12 climber hitting the trio of climbs as warmups, you might as well give it a lap.
