4 out of 5 stars Gordy onsights Wizards Tower

Fun adventurouse friction slab climb up the wizards hat.Be prepared for run outs and some crispy rock in spots.Bolts are hard to see when climbing,so be alert.Helmet recomended.We replaced the old rap slings on June 30,2010.Theres 2 rap rings on the new slings.The view on top is amazing,and the climbing is uniquely fun.
