Park your car off of the main canyon road.
This is one of the best sport climbs I've ever done. Climb the arete on Tower One starting in the gully between Towers One and Two, eventually gaining a long white slab.
Rappel the route with two ropes.
Ten bolts to a metolius rap hanger with chain.

This climb is great!!!! It is possible to get off this route with one 60m rope. From the anchors on Little Hellion rappell to the anchors on Medussa, from there a 60m rope will get you down. Make sure you find the center of your rope because a 60m barly makes it.

Use at least a 60m rope. If your belayer stands high in the gully and you lower to high in the gully, a 60m rope just barely make it. Still, make sure your belayer ties into the end of the rope for safety. This will help you avoid a 10-15 foot fall into the talus, scrapes and bruises.

There are 10(!) bolts + a 2 bolt anchor with rings. We used a sixty and had plenty of rope for lowering and rapping, just belay high in the gully and lower/rap to the right of the tree and scramble down.

Did this as a warmup today, I didn't think it was that great, but fun climbing. Belaying at the top and rapping with a 60m seemed like the best option to me.

as far as belaying in the gulley goes, i have always been told to stand clear of the gully and have witnessed rocks speed out of that thing. they call it helmet gate for a reason.

I witnessed a girl come within 12" of having her brain splattered all over the place by a piece of choss coming down the gully to her left. Or was it falling from the top? Either way, don't get dead.
