Start climbing up a steep 5.8 bulge passing two bolts to a runout 4th class ramp. Stay right, following big features to the third bolt. Ascend the arête up the right side of the face, passing a total of nine bolts to a scenic belay on the summit spire.


Rope up at the right toe of the buttress. This is the first route you will encounter as you get to Black Tower. A good strategy is to bring up the follower and either rappel with 70M rope or scramble off to right. (Possible to rap off to right side with 60M rope. Knot the ends of your rope and be careful!)


9 bolts to chain anchor on summit.
