This is an excellent multipitch climb up the west face of Exemplar Tower.
Pitch 1: scramble up easy terrain to a hand crack/face climb. Set up a belay on a semi-ledge that fits about 3 people.
Pitch 2: from the ledge, move up on the finger crack/face climb and use the left arete for help. Then trend right for more fun climbing, and boulder the blocks at the top of the tower.
It is on the far north side of the west face of the tower. From the approach trail, go up the rough creekbed until you hit the west face. The start is next to a tree at the base of the first dihedral that continues up the tower.
Good protection throughout. Standard rack works fine. Tape up!
