The east face of Tollakson's Tower, Becky'...


This small formation is located 150' right and slightly uphill from Becky's Buttress and is distinguished by a flat and narrow upper portion, giving it the appearance of a chair. Not much to recommend here but it could be worth the short hike from Becky's Buttress to check it out. All of the existing routes are on the shorter east face of the formation and an easy downclimb exists down the southwest side of the formation.

Getting There 

Approach as for Becky's Buttress but veer slightly right at the base of the hillside and hike directly to the base.

Climbing Season

Start off ledges in the center if the east face and climb interesting moves on gritty rock past two bolts into a sharp thin crack with plates. Gear belay and easy downclimb off the back of the formation.This does have some fun moves but it features all of 20' of climbing and the rock is fairly sharp and grainy. Zero stars out of five....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
