3 out of 5 stars Tonka Tower

Interesting and worthy tower bag with Joe K. A few true aid moves (A0). The rock is such, would not be worth considering getting this tower clean...double rope rap off the NE face. All I think you really need is a single set from .5-3" and some slings.

good route...rock's a little soft. an enormous boulder came loose while climbing just left of the middle hump on the tower. watch for loose rock.

Cool chimney up to a fun aid section on old ice screws. Can be done in 1 longer pitch for less time.
