Description 

The obvious tower feature with a large, splitting crack. This small area is home to three routes, two of which require gear and a brave heart.

Bring a 60 meter rope, 10 draws, a fair amount of slings and doubles of large cams. Hexes can be handy if you own any?

Getting There 

Follow the trail into Knightland and take the second trail on the right which aims for the Stairway to Heaven.

Climbing Season

The crux comes early with the overhanging hand crack. Once you get past this pull yourself into the batshit .8 or so squeeze chimney. There is an old bolt (no hanger) somewhere in there.
