The climb can be done in 1 or 2 pitches, as desired (total length 180').

Pitch 1:
Face climb up past a bolt to gain the crack system. Follow this crack up to major ledge for a natural belay. The route joins The Truman Motto here.

Pitch 2:
From the belay ledge follow the vertical crack up and right past the bulge through a series of parallel vertical cracks to gain a weakness below the headwall, follow this weakness and crack system up and left to a set of anchors.


From the base of the Truman Tower, head up the gully 15', climber's left; The route begins with a few easy opening face moves with a bolt (Petzl hanger) to gain the obvious crack.

2 Rope Rappel
