Description 

The Left Tower stands left of the other posted routes (1/2012), about two thirds of the way up the hill. It has an intriguing shape, even looks like a molar when viewed from the top of Upper Dome.

Getting There 

Approach as for Out of Darkness Slabs. Then head left and up until the tower comes into view.

Barring that, same thing to whoever climbed this to place the modern rap-bolts.For the 5.8 leader, this route climbs like playing with a Jack In the Box toy. Hold your belayer down with a good upward pull piece(s) as there is an overhanging block of rock at the belay.There's the vertical crack climb with good pro which climbs like the nice easy music and the suspenseful clicky sound from the...[more]   Browse More Classics in NM
