Description:

A nice two pitch route leading to the Teachers Lounge ledge at the base of the very prominent Assembly Line on the NE Buttress.
Take the Tower Trail counter clockwise passing the large fallen column on the east side of the trail. A dirt trail will head of to the left, follow this up to the base and right till you are below the Teacher's Lounge. An 80' 5.7 low angle left facing dihedral leads to fixed anchors. The business is a long stemming dihedral with occasional fingerlocks on the second pitch (140 ft). The first pitch is a great beginner trad lead. Rap Route.

Good route. Some rotten rock halfway up. Last 15 feet is a finger crack which is the crux. You place a couple of good pieces before flashing through it. If your a 5.9 climber you should give this one a shot don't let the 5.10b scare you away. I thought Walt Baily was much tougher.
