4 out of 5 stars Follow

Climbed the first pitch to get to Reggae. Went straight up the thin slab at the start, rather than the crack to the left.

4 out of 5 stars fun up, not so fun down

I led crux pitch, Becca did the rest. P1 felt harder than a 6 (way harder than 8's in Boulder Canyon)- the edges have been worn from years of climbing, and the transition out of the roof in particularly has sketchy foot, and awkward hands - very unsettling knowing if you lose your footing, you'd swing into the side of the roof. There is also one move at the beginning of the second pitch that is probably an 8 move, but that's more protected.

The P1 crack holds pro like you wouldn't believe... the party ahead of us lost a cam, and I lost a nut. Another day like this, and it'd be all pro-ed up for future climbing.

Could not for the life of us find the rap anchors. In a pinch, you can rappel off a tree anywhere along the northwest side of the tower (towards the back of the gully), it will drop you onto various shelves that you can downclimb or walk down to meet the trail.

Someone please post pictures of where the rap anchors are!

5 out of 5 stars Really Nice Route

I climbed against the boulder to our first piece about 12 feet up instead of starting 10 feet to the left. Easy first pitch. Moved over to Reggae after the first pitch.

4 out of 5 stars .

Just the first pitch, but it was fantastic. Start isn't nearly as hard as it looks from the ground. Mostly good gear all the way. Put directional in last corner for your second before traversing to bolts as it is a height-dependent crux.
