Description 

A fun line that has a gear sucking crack from the ground to the summit. There are several overhanging bulges that are less intimidating than one might expect due to the great protection afforded. The line was cleaned of the obvious belayer death blocks thus creating more nonchalant free movement. Only the last 10 feet can be considered "soft". Otherwise step in and be confident.

Location 

This obvious line is on the west side of the tower just under the coyote ears on the summit.

Protection 

Active: BD .3 X 2, .4 X 2, .5 X 2, .75 X 2, #1s X 3, 2s X 3, 3s X 2, 4s X 2.

Misc.: A quiver of QDs and runners.

Anchor: Two bolts with a cordellette and a quick link.

Rope: One 60m

Do not be tricked by the overhanging and intimidating bulges. Good gear will be prevalent!
