Formerly an aid route, which now goes free due to the piton scars. Take the South Face Approach and then follow the Ramp up and right. There is a 75 ft, 5.5 chimney approach pitch or take Roach Addition to the rop of the broken column. Pitch 1 (160 ft) Step over the void and into the thin crack. Be sure to keep your eyes open towards the top of the pitch for holds on the right face. Anchors await at the top, rap or summit via the Meadows.

One of the better routes I did in the course of a week at the Tower. I used a lot more than 8 pieces of gear, c3 cams were very useful in pin scars. This loooooooong pitch climbs like a slightly steeper version of Cathedral Ledge's "Book of Solemnity."
