Here Today, Gone Tomorrow. 5.10+ 6b+ 21 VII+ 20 E3 5b A1 R  Utah : Moab Area : ... : The Hunchback
This route is located on the northeastern prow of the tower. The original line is further west, not east as described in DR3 (the fixed bolt can be observed).Start up an interesting hand crack and then traverse left to an off-fingers crack. At the top of the off-fingers crack (10+), traverse left again (A1) for an exciting, poorly protected, mantle finish (10/10+).This route will likely go free in the 11+/12- range.Simul rappel off the tower since there is no summit anchor....[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah
