Moving onto the arete after the lower crux crack.

Description 

Follow the lower 1/2 of this crack, which is set in a shallow corner and involves some a series of short cruxy moves separated by rest stances. Small stoppers offer less-than-ideal pro, be careful. Once beneath the bulging upper hand crack, sink in a good #3 camalot and skirt right onto the arete. Follow this for several more cruxy spots to a small ledge. Clip a bolt and crimp up chert past some suspect blocks to the top. An engaging climb that involves much cerebral maneuvering with some questionable pro.

Location 

The striking crack on the up-canyon end of the uphill face. The upper portion of the crack has yet to be scaled, but would probably require some trundling to be a safe option.

Protection 

RPs, small cams and medium stoppers, #3 camalot, 1 bolt, chain anchor.

Sorry for the lack of photos of either the route or a nice profile pic of the tower. The camera wasn't cooperating that night, plus we were climbing in the last light and on top in the dark due to our after-work start. Will post better shots if I'm up that way again anytime soon.

So after 7 years, this thing finally saw a presumed 2nd ascent (based on the crispy tat on the anchor from the FA). A big thanks to Clay and Terry for replacing said tat with chains! The consensus bumped the grade up a bit, and it holds strong as a heady little jaunt over questionable small pro.
