Description 

The far left side of the tower as you are looking at it from the road. The North side of the tower starts at the far left with Technowitch and continues, ending with Jabberwocky and Rubber Mission/Full Rubber Mission; which bleed into the west face of the tower.

Shady most of the day and can be windy.

Getting There 

Short approach from the camping. Find the tower (as if you could miss it), and continue past it on the trail in front. The trail switches back soon and will put you right at the in front of the routes you wish to climb. Please stay on the trail.

Nearing the end of the difficulties of Grendel. Ju...

Grendel 5.11b 6c 23 VIII- 23 E3 5c  NM : Enchanted Tower : ... : North (Left) Face
Easy start to an unexpected hard move where the holds aren't as good as they look, to a great rest. At this point follow the right line of bolts up the steep face on mostly good holds. Watch out as there are a few heavily chalked sucker holds that lead to dead ends. Rest at the ledge up top, then finish to the anchors. Can also be done using the start for Once Upon A Time and traversing left, this makes it a bit harder, probably hard 11b, easy 11c....[more]   Browse More Classics in NM
