Description 

Start at the lowest point of Wall 3 Tower and head up to just before the chimney. Cross over right to the finger crack and head straight up passing several insecure moves. At the top of the crack, gain the ledge and carefully work around and over the "flake of doom" onto the face. Move up trending left to the top.

Location 

The center route on Wall 3 Tower.

Protection 

A rack of singles to 4" and a few extra finger pieces if you want to sew it up. (Pink, red & brown tri-cams and/or some offset nuts work well, too.) Slings will minimize rope drag.

The flake of doom is a little scary, but otherwise has lots of fun finger-and-tips jams with insecure feet. Trundled a hundred pound block off of the alternate start - I wouldn't recommend going that way.

I absolutely loved this route. Once someone (Bueller... Bueller) cleans the leaves out of the cracks, there's some nice finger-locks, hand-jams, and rather elegant face moves. Once I neared the top, I stepped left to finish on the upper face of Birthday Party, making for a diagonal exploration of the Tower. I highly recommend this variation!

Awesome, Andy! So great to see you enjoying the lines. (Yes, my middle name is Bueller. I'll be back up there this Saturday, hopefully getting a bit o' cleaning done...)
