Description:

Another contender for best pitch on the Tower. Take the West Face Approach to the northwest shoulder, the climb starts on the shoulder three cracks to the right of Carol's Crack. Pitch 1 (160 ft) Beautiful finger crack (crux) leads to a belay. Pitch 2 (130 ft) Excellent 5.9 hand crack to a 2 bolt belay. Rap or continue up 3 pitches (5.9, 5.8, 5.2) of widening crack and then chimney to the summit.

5 out of 5 stars Great route

Found second pitch much harder, wee hands don't like that size crack.

5 out of 5 stars A fine route

This one is worth taking to the top! First few pitches are the best, but the upper pitches are good too
