Description 

This route climbs a dihedral up the center of the Tilted Tower. From the ledge above the Meanie Cracks, climb the face to the dihedral. Near the top of the dihedral, you can either pull over the face to the left, or continue to the right and work up an arete (easier) to the pointed "summit" of the tower. Either rap off a pair of anchors just below top, or belay and continue up Arch Rock Direct directly above.


Protection 

Standard rack (medium pro).

Good route, the better way to start is from one of the mennie cracks 5.7

There's a neat little roof pull that feels pretty exposed. Neat little climb. Rapping with a 70m barely got us to the ground.

Rapping with a 60m rope will get you to the ledge where the Meanie Cracks start. It's easy to scramble off from there, perhaps 20ft of class 3.
