This route is on the East face of Tower 1, around the corner from main face in a corridor of sorts. The climb is a bit contrived, but nevertheless an easy set up after climbing the Tower 1 face at 5.7

After a you get a couple of handholds up in the seam climb up and right to pull the bulge. For me pulling over the bulge is the crux and requires some strength.

Michael Paul and I put this up sometime in the 80's. I recently found out that there is another Pit Bull on the summit, so I agreed to call this one "baby pit bull"
