Incredible tower and arch climb, fantastic route. First pitch had damn hard crux until I finally bounced off of a fist jam. 2nd pitch offered great exposure through a window, just incredible. Getting through the roof and the "burly" mantle on top were the cruxes. The third pitch was enjoyable 5.10 vs just scaring the shit out of you. It is far better to do the 4th class and then reset your belay for that short wall below the final pitch. Way too many things could go wrong if you didn't. The final pitch was a piece of cake after the first 3 pitches. Wild rap through the arch window. Have only done two other raps to rival it. Approach and remoteness make this one hell of a climb. Almost stepped on a Midget Faded rattlesnake on the descent. First one I have ever seen. Actually pleasant time of year to climb it believe it or not.

A0'd the bolt ladder. Puked on the top of the second pitch after sending it. Two thumbs up!
