Comments: A super laid back way to get to the great views of Teacher's Lounge, or if you want to save all your strength for Assembly Line.

If you are looking for a real challenge at the Tower, this probably isn't worth your time, but for the beginner or if you are just looking to warm up and stretch the limbs out, this would be a great choice to climb.

Better have at least one #4 and a couple #3 BD cams on your sling unless you are willing to really run things out.

Comments: ^^^I'd probably be one of those folks!

The splitter at the top following the heart pumping moments at the crux made for this total feeling of accomplishment. Couple that with the views you get while relaxing on Teachers Lounge and I think this route becomes a Tower must do!!!

Comments: This was my first 10 on the Tower and I loved every second of it. The route starts off easy and just gets harder and harder all the way to the crux where the really balancy moves take over. The gear is solid but a little run out in places, though you can find good stances all over. I didn't carry anything smaller than a #7 BD nut, but if I did it again, I would probably carry a couple nuts in the 5-6 BD range.

The splitter hand crack at the top 20 ft of the climb makes for a total conf... more >>

Comments: Probably my all time TF favorite. My only gripe is that it isn't 1000' taller because it is just that much fun.

It is just a spectacular hand crack with a tricky (but protected)crux coming out of the cave.

They call it 5.8ish, which is probably accurate, but if you have your jamming act together it will feel pretty effortless and 100% enjoyable.

Comments: A spectacular TF crack route. This climb is an easy TR set-up but really shines when you jump out on the sharp end.

A little head-point beta for you would be to have a #11 (Black Diamond) nut on it's own biner ready to slot in at the start of the crux 2/3 of the way up on the right crack.

This is on my top 3 list for TF climbs.
