Burnt-Out Candle

Description 

This is the easiest way to the top of the tower. Start in the dihedral and gain the big ledge. At this point you can comfortably plug in some bomber gear to protect the 5.5 face move if you want. Be aware of cranking too hard on the crack and jug near the crux since they are part of a detached block (can be seen at the bottom of the main photo.) Once past the crux, head up easy terrain to the summit.


Location 

Start in the dihedral with the chock stone in it and head straight up.


Protection 

Standard light rack. Pro is good the whole way up.

Bring small pro for the crack that divides the summit if you're planning to TR other routes on the tower.
