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.
