I think this is the only bolted route on the column. There are probably some alternates, as there are cracks on either side of the face near the top. Watch out for hornets. You can top rope this one easily via a 4th-class scramble on the feathers side of the tower. Great airy, exposed feeling due to the isolation of the tower.

5 out of 5 stars The most dangerous part was the hornets.

This is an awesome climb, probably a little soft for 5.8 but that is what the book says. Awesome exposure, feels like you are 500 feet up. Don't miss!
