The first pitch I estimated at 5.10, runners are recommended for this as well as a varied selection of cams. The protection is good unless you opt for the 5.8R variation which was not taken on the F.A.. The pitch ends with a bolt and natural gear anchor at a stance in a wide part of the crack. The second pitch is, “The Goods.” A perfect #2 hand crack splits the pure face above. This pitch stars by pulling a small roof that can be easily stemmed through. From there the crack continues with perfect hand jams. There was only one section on the whole pitch where I got thin hand jams. The pitch ends by mantling onto a ledge, the two bolt anchor is at the top to the second, better ledge.

4 out of 5 stars FFA of entire route

Onsight FFA of all 4 pitches completed with Freden. The next pitch was one of the best chimneys I have ever done (5.7). The next pitch was the crux with an akward 5.11- OW to easier climbing to the top of the tower.

I onsited both pitches of this route as I cleaned them. It may have been because I was out of shape but the first pitch was one of the most relenting Onsite F.A.’s I have ever done. I found a total of four distinct cruxes on the pitch, some more mental than physical and others more physical than mental.The second pitch was sweet and straight forward hands, I was able to milk several no hands rest on the textured face holds. I thougt this pitch was 5.9+, "The Creek Style."
