This is the hardest route on the Tower, and to my knowledge only one person has flailed up it since Andy Petefish put it up in 1988. Take the West Face Approach. The climb goes up 150 ft on the arete just right of Tulgey Wood.

4 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

Awesome, sustained, thin climbing. Intense footwork and crystal crimping on small edges. Some holds are loose, but most of the route is solid. 8 attempts for the clean lead? Ended up skipping a clip up high.
