Start a ways upstream of Epi, at the base of the obvious left facing dihedral some ways right of Epi, below the Texas Tower. Follow the dihedral up to the big bushy ledge, then head right to the base of another dihedral. The next pitch takes you up and left to the base of the Panhandle Crack, the incredible splitter that splits the Tower. Once atop the tower, one pitch of the TT Connection deposits you at an anchor at the base of another dihedral. Up and right for the two crux pitches, then up and left through the big roof to the final anchor. Fix your rap line to the last anchor lest you not be able to retreat!
Rap with two cords.

I've climbed perhaps 100 routes at rr, and this was the best. I thought it better than Cloud Tower.
First couple of pitches grubby, and then a really scary loose rock (hopefully it has fallen off). The next 7 pitches are fantastic- face, traverse, crack, flare (lots of flare). The last pitch, 800ft over the dirt, is a sandbag 30 ft roof starting good hands, ending thin hands. WOWW The first 11C crux is a real sandbag. The second 11C is 11C.
