If you are looking for an easy lead or if you just started and are working your way up through the grades, then this is your route.

Mr. Kelman says "this was the first route used to ascend the tower (early 1950s)". Today its main function is to provide a relatively easy passage off the tower.

Climb the trough as seen in the photo. When you encounter the large chockstone at the top, follow the trough that passes it on the right.


The route is located on the northeast end of the tower. To descend, downclimb the route.


Light rack, medium cams for an anchor.
