Description:

Climbs the nose of Tower of Poor Rock for 2 pitches. Can continue on but doesn't look good. 1st pitch climbs 5.9 fingers and hands to good ledge below imposing roof/offwidth. 2nd pitch goes into the belly of the beast. Go straight up through fragile rock and get a good 4 and/or 4.5 camalot into the roof. Undercling out to a good stance where the fun begins. Face holds keep the offwidthing thankfully moderate. Small gear opportunities exist after it really widens and kicks back. Ends at good ledge with fixed anchor. Can continue via route described in Brunckhorst guide. Sweet looking finger/hand cracks right of the OW, check em out!

Descent Options:

2 double rope raps get you to the base. Look for anchor on the right side of the finishing ledge (fixed stoppers). Midway ledge has a slung flake (sling may have blown off). As usual take extra slingage and binners.
