Description 

High Cost of Climbing is the second route from the left on the main Power Tower wall (right of Facade), beginning close to a large pine tree at the base of the wall.

P1 - Climb the thin crack to a large ledge (160', 5.10a)

P2 - Continue up the slightly flaring hand crack (130', 5.8)

P3 - Follow the leftmost of the twin cracks left of the right-angling ramp of Sword of Damocles. You will notice the bolt ladder on Sword of Damocles to your right (60', 5.9)

P4 - Finish up easier but dirtier terrain to the 2-bolt anchor atop Sword of Damocles and the rim of the Power Tower Wall (40', 5.7)

Location 

Look for the large pine tree at the base of the main Power Tower wall. This route starts immediately left of that tree.

Protection 

Standard rack to 3"
