Starting at Teacher's Lounge, climb the corner directly above where New Wave and Broken Tree end. This route features thin, continuous stemming with a finger-tip crack for protection and no real rests until near the anchor. The crack widens a bit as it gets higher. Endurance climbing with hard moves thrown into the mix. This corner is a full-body workout and a phenomenal route that really lets you know you're at Devils Tower.
Many finger-sized nuts and cams. A few pieces for thin hands.

Cleaned of weeds in Sep. 2010. Although this route is difficult it protects well and can easily be sewn up with finger-sized nuts and cams. It is not to be missed if you are looking for the harder offerings on the Tower.
