Alex's Tower

Description 

Climb a short but beautiful section of hands to a large ledge. Walk around the right hand side of a small tower and gain a finger crack with good ledges, and climb to the top of the tower. No fixed anchor.

The first section of the route is great, but the short length and upper section detract from the star potential.


Location 

Located around the left hand side (west faceing) of lower Mother's Buttress. Look for a short, perfect, hand crack.


Protection 

Small to hand sized cams and nuts.
