p1 starts on ramp and climbs chimney (5.8, 90'). p2 traverses 35' (5.5) and then up (A.0, 10') to ancient bird nest (with egg shells and mice bones). p3, 1" crack leads to twin "seams to 1 1/2" " to belay (A.1, 110'). p4 climbs 1" crack to roof (very awkward A.1+) then more A.1+ and mixed free loose chimney moves to summit.

One hole (angle) was drilled to direct summit raps to NW side. Other belays are clean w/ fixed pins.


NW face of tower, the analog of Primal Yawn. Raps (CRITICAL INFO) from summit, R1) 140' and one line end must be tied in as you are 10' in space. R2, 110' to bird nest, R3 140' to ground (you do not return to starting ramp)


Triple camming units smallest to 1 1/2, doubles to 4", one #5 & #6. Ball nuts (2 sets) very helpful. 2 LA's, 2 KB's, 1 ea. angle to 3/4"
