Description:

really fun, awsome climb!!! even the hike in is cool. The rock is definaly soft, I would not trust my pro too much, but the set petons are pretty bomber. They call this climb a 5.11 but it did not feel any harder than 5.9 to me. I think because the face sections are so well protected. The pins are litteraly 2-3 feet apart. The chimeny or second pitch is easy except for one interesting move below a bulge, which is protected by a pin. I put my hand right into open air, looking for a mantle there. The cork screw summit is pretty exiting because of the exposure. The little hike across to the diving board is crazy, I'm a wimp, I had to crawl. With a mantle onto the diving board, there is just a 5.8 move to the summit, the rest is really easy, just exposed. I have to say that if you are a climber, and you do not summit this route in your lifetime, your missing out. I did not think I would have the guts to stand up on the summit, but once I got there, I knew what I had to do, and it was not bad. This is the second easiest multipitch tower behind the colorado national monument.
