You can spot the W even in the star light.  Head up chute to left.  Does not look this obvious from lower down.

Comments: So maybe I'm kinda fragile, but the rap anchor is pretty bogus. We downclimbed the route about 30 feet and made a two stopper anchor to rappel from. Climb goes at 5.9ish and is really good!

Comments: I didn't get a feeling of any wierdness. I think someone bought it and there is just a small scale construction project going on. That said it looked pretty clear to me that the tower is on that private property and the abundance of signage implies that the owners want no part of any monkey business with climbers on their new possession. Sucks we had to walk through a knee deep shit swamp to figure that out.
