Heads right up the center of the east face of the Leaning Tower with hard technical crux moves right off the ground. Then wander up the face through jugs and one more challenging section before a final crux at the anchors. Watch out for the wasp's nest in a pocket 3/4 of the way up the wall. If it ever gets cold enough the nest could be removed, but there is a way around the nest that, interesting.


10 bolts to chains anchor with biners

Fun, thin technical climbing, and felt a bit trad-ish in the upper portion. Fortunately I didn't see the nest when I climbed it in April!
Lots of bolts - several more than Tiny Propeller.
