Description:

The Wisdom Tooth Tower is located south of Buckhorn Wash Road one major drainage west of the obvious Light Bulb. Don't follow the obvious wash to get to the tower...it cliffs out. Instead head up the wash a short while and look for a breach in the cliffs on the left side. On the tower's north face is a striking crack system w/ a changing corners crux down low and lots of everything before bolts on a ledge (not visible from below). This is a quality pitch. However, the supposed second pitch is a choss pile. It's supposed to be 5.9+, but we couldn't find any anchors on top, so we had to downclimb and leave pro to get back to the top of P1. If you do seek out the tower's top, be prepared for a mank fest.
