Description 

Climb the main ramp using gear and then move up the face following the bolts. The crux is just past the 2nd bolt in my opinion. For top roping I suggest using the middle balcony to belay instead of the lower section, a much better view too.

Location 

The center middle ramp on the Leaning tower. Look for the large diving board up top which you will be to the right of.

Protection 

Gear, 3 bolts, and a small TCU placement in a crack on the face. Chains up top.

The anchor on the top of this seemed a little suspect.

It's isn't an ideal setup. Maybe old, but it's bomb proof. The angle of pull in that granite. Unless things have started spinning up there, I never gave it a second thought. Best to carry some extendable slings for the anchor if you intend to top rope.
