5.8 A1- This is a very good route, don't let the aid climbing scare you off. The aid is actually only the first 30 ft or so, it will probably go free. All the gear is very good. Pitch 1- start up the steep thin cracks that lead the the ramp traversing the southwest side of the tower- C1, 5.6. stop at the fixed anchor just before the ramp starts to get steep. Pitch 2- continue up the ramp to the obvious chimney. You do not need any big gear in the chimney- There are cracks in the sides(it's to wide any way). You will come to a two bolt anchor on the west facing(climbers right) wall of the chimney, 5.8. Pitch 3- climb a short pitch through to the ledge on top of the "time Tunnel"- poor anchor or continue up the3rd pitch of otto's. If you want to top out you'll finish on the last 2 pitch of otto's. rap otto's.

We only made it up the aid pitch, it is some easy aid. Ran out of time or would have kept going. It looks like a great climb and were allredy planning to return!
