BETA PHOTO: The southeast ridge crack system.


Chossy climbing up the southeast ridge leads to the summit. The easiest known climbing line to the top.


From the base of the south side of the tower, start climbing up a short chossy 5.3 cliff band. After the short cliff band, continue exploring up class 3-4 terrain on the south side of the tower. ~150 feet directly below the summit block, straight forward access to the top is halted. Scramble to the southeast ridge (class 4) and once on the southeast ridge, do a short descent to a bench around to the east face. From the bench on the east face, scramble up ledges/chimneys and traverse back to the southeast ridge. ~50 feet east of the southeast ridge is a crack system leading to the top. Climb the crack, 5.6, to the summit.

For the descent, scramble 50 feet south from the summit to a large boulder. Rappel back down the southeast ridge route to the east face ledges.

Expect easy chossy adventure climbing.


Small rack. Slings for anchors
