Description:

Good moderate 2-pitch route. Pitch 1 begins left of the Tilted Tower on a grassy ledge and climbs up just right of the dihedral, placing some nuts to the first bolt 40' up. Continue past 3 more bolts on excellet face climbing to a 2-bolt belay stance. Rappel using 2 ropes or continue up on Pitch 2 which climbs straight up over the arch above on easier rock (5.7).

4 out of 5 stars Between Village Idiot & Zendance?

Followed my bud up a bolted/trad route between the two (I think). The first bolt was high and my tall friend had trouble clipping it from a ledge up and left. If you know what this craziness is, let me know.

used soloist..the climbing is mostly 5.7 except for a thin traverse around the 3rd bolt. It's runnout to the first bolt on easy terrain..you can use small to medium cams to help protect the thin traverse.
