Pitch 1: Find a super fun looking chimney and grovel up for about 60 feet. Once at the top, of the chimney, climb through a boulder choke. (The FA went up and left but other variations may work.) At the top of the boulders, grab the dirt tufas and tread veeeeerrrrrrrry lightly up and over to the anchors.

Pitch 2: Traverse right of the anchors to access the saddle of the tower. Beware of the jugs that you pull on to straddle the saddle. Once standing on the saddle, clip 3 bolts to anchors. Tap or stand on the top (ha ha) and rap back to pitch 1 anchors.


This little guy is to the left and around the corner from hidden tower. There is a little alcove in the back. If you look up and right once you are in that alcove there are some towers up there. Tarmac is the skinny little on in the middle.


A set of cams and a few draws.
