Bolts Are Failing! MORE INFO >>>


From the "Broadway" ledge halfway up the Clocktower, follow easy blocks and cracks up the left side. Just above lip of the roof and a long horizontal crack (this is One Way Ticket), continue up and right, up and right. Obvious protection and discontinuous cracks take you through a path of least resistance to the top of the tower. Belay off nearby bolts.

This route is graded 10b or something in the book. Ha!
