Comments: Enjoyable route with fun movement and good gear. Plenty of great moments throughout, but the fourth pitch especially is sustained and beautiful.

Comments: The route is on the south, narrow side of the tower in a large alcove that separates Kissing Couple from the other, shorter towers closer to the road. The boulder problem to access the alcove involves a chockstone in a bombay chimney slot and features a cairn/stepstool at the base.

One 70m works for the rap.

Comments: We had no need for a BD #4 or a second #3. Triples of #0.4 and #0.5 were nice for the crux pitch.

The "other" exit gully (right of the standard) featured some chimney bouldering, bush-aiding and a clever hole to squeeze through, plus a couple moves of low-5th to get back to the rim proper.

Comments: Enjoyable route. After rapping the Tooth, we took Casual to the rim. Especially fun climbing on the blocky arete just above and right of the walkoff gully chockstone/cave.

Rap anchor is in good condition as of 9/2/13.

Comments: Very enjoyable route with several wild stemming moves and a thin, balancy finish.

Comments: I also hopped into the squeeze chimney on the right side of P2 after clipping the old anchors in the stembox. Great size, felt much more secure than dinking with little gear on the left side. A bomber BD #.4 protected pulling out of the chimney. I'm 5'10", and the stemming at the end was kind of wild. Spandex tights are a plus for making every inch count, and for making your belayer lose the will to live.

Comments: Be sure to tag the summit of the mini-tower by chimneying all the way up. Great "toprope heroes" moment.

Comments: There's a newly-loosened block at the start of P3 (splitter wide crack). The bottom of it forms a #1-2 horizontal that used to be good for anchor building. You can't tell that it's loose until you make a couple moves up the pitch.
