Just a good action photo of the whole route.

Description 

This is a former trad route that has since been bolted. It's a slab climb typical of jackson Falls, although with more features than you might expect. A little sketchy for the new leader, stick clip recommended in this case. Once established on the route, the first three bolts are pretty easy to clip. Keep moving right and you might need your belayer to describe the feet. Once you establish moving upward, it only gets easier to the top.

Location 

On the right just to the left of the arete on the obvious slab of the actual Battle Axe Tower

Protection 

6 bolts (?) and shuts. Well protected, to the point of some rope drag.
