3 out of 5 stars Third Time's a Charm

Do it as a single pitch. Best route on the tower by far. The crux is full on at this grade. More like 5.10+ if you can nail it, I fell the first time. Bolt protects the crux move for me. My parnter thought the crux was below it. Either way, a few hard slabby moves gets you to a great hand jug. The more interesting finish is up and right vs the 5th class left. The first half of the climbing is quick and easy getting to that bolt.

4 out of 5 stars Beautiful.

For me the crux was after the bolt, on which I took a fall. Changing back from face to crack was the problem (not enough crack experience). Followed the second pitch, for which we went right, which is not the original second pitch, I think.

3 out of 5 stars Crux before the bolt

Good climb but not sustained, one move wonder before the bolt protected crux, it blanks out.
