Pitch one from the ring anchor up a few feet, then left and up the dihedral. Belay on the ledge with the trees (5a - 5.7). A short pitch through the bushes. Nice 5a pitch up the face to the lonesome tree. Then a little traverse right and and up along the parallel cracks (5c+ 5.9+). Then up and right. Then straight up and left to the anchor right below the stuck rock. Last pitch goes through below the stuck rock, then up to the summit with the trees.

Descent Options:

Walk down the steep trail.

4 out of 5 stars Really nice climb on a great looking tower.

First pitch is 35m, second 15m, so rather short. Funny 'tunnel' in the last pitch.
Swapped lead, led 1 4 5.
