Description:

climb a hand and fist crack to the saddle on the right side of the tower. (at 5' & 100#, i did a combo of stemming with the giant flake to the left and chimney moves near the top because the crack was an unfun OW for me). traverse is AIR-Y but fun when it's over.. second pitch is stellar face climbing, as you near the top of the ramp for the bolts, take time to enjoy the view. climb past 5 bolts on the west face. an enjoyable route - the summit kicks some serious ass.

UPDATE the piano-sized block fell out of the chimney separating Easter Island from Sunflower on Easter Sunday, 2001. 2 bolts added to the route subsequently.

5 out of 5 stars did this at dusk

the 5.8 pitch is a little scary, the gear beta in the Bloom's guide is bs, you need at least one purple camalot for the traverse.

5 out of 5 stars Airy, sandy face climbing on a desert tower

Followed Greg on the first pitch. Led the second pitch. Was in the zone. Styled the face climbing. Awesome low summit!
