We did this route in four pitches plus some scrambling to access the virgin summit tower. Scrambling/hiking around up there is pretty cool.
See pics for location
3 sets of cams. We had (2)#4, (2)#5 and (1) #6 as I recall
(1) #3 Pecker is nice on the last pitch.
Most of this could be free climbed in warmer weather but it's still pretty loose and there is plenty of wideness thrown in for fun.
The rock on the last pitch really sucks and the top of the chimney is capped by a huge death block. Be safe!
Enjoy the sun while you can boy!
Route follows yellow line
Summit chimney including death block.
Rich on the first pitch. Pretty loose but standard...
The tower from the parking lot. North Tower is jus...
Man it was cold.
