Rob! You did this in April this year? We just missed each other if so! I was there at the end of March into April....climbed 'Lonely Vigil'

Different Lighthouse Tower Xtine - this thing is way the hell out in the boonies requiring a raft to get to, not the tower along river road.

Ah, makes sense....as it looks very different anyway. :) Cool formation! And even cooler with its remoteness!

We climbed this in May of....2005? Can't recall. It's about a pitch tall. Some free, some aid. Junky overhang down low to a nice crack that tapers to aid placements. We picked what looked like the most likely line and judging from the trundles it was unclimbed, but we found a bolt on the summit so someone found a way up. No special gear needed, I remember a hand-placed KB was about the most exotic. No nails, just the one piece.

I wrote a better description for Eric Bjornstad but this should get you there. I don't even know what aspect it was on, the day was cloudy and the crack twisted around and nothing seemed real certain.

Photo is of the rap, from the old bolt and one we added. Our line was around to the left on a different side.

We also did some cragging somewhere on river right...if I ever find my notes those would be worth knowing about. Some okay half-rope stuff.
