Description:

Staying Power Towers. Left of Blood Sugar Sex Magik. Pitch 1: stem up chimney (start of To Knee or Not to Knee), follow bolts up flake and 5.10a face to the right. Pitch 2: follow bolts up insanely steep juggy overhangs, easily the steepest 5.10b at Owens, and join the top of Don't Look Down. 180' rap, can rap to intermediate station with one 60m rope, but be careful as you have to swing into the station (use backup on the rappel!). A 1-bolt connector to the left gets you from the top of the first pitch to the starting anchor for Don't Look Down (4th class).

4 out of 5 stars Great 10.b multi pitch

Really fun jug haul, but watch for loose blocks on the second pitch and there is a traverse across a sharp flake just right out of the overhanging part to be aware of.

lead pitch 2 which was money. 9 bolts on P2 is false. its more like 12 so rack accordingly.

3 out of 5 stars Fun

Route is a little weird since it bypasses the roof which is a great feature.

4 out of 5 stars jugs

Awesome second pitch, unbelivably steep, but pretty easy! A good trainer for steeper routes. I did feel however that I was going to pull monster blocks onto my belayer during everymove...
