Was wondering if this leads to the firetower?
Also, had a question if anyone knows the current status of the cleanup after the EF-1 we heard hit the mountain and campground in July.... NPS says clearing the mess could take "several weeks."
Unfortunately, we already bought tickets, hotel rooms, etc. Looking for a Hail Mary. Thanks!

|Slabby, but grippy, the upper portion is only so so, I would recommend going to the anchors on the next route (to the right), Junk In the Trunk. Nice 5.9, good warmup for the other routes around the buttress.|

|Don't let the large spacing between bolts scrare you away; this climb is well bolted. It's the easiest route at the crag and would be a good quick warmup for some of the harder 9s.|

|Scramble, scramble, clip a bolt, pull a harder move... rinse, and repeat. Not really worth climbing unless 5.8-5.9 is your grade. Not even that good of a warm-up, since the climbing between the harder bits are really easy. Going to the anchor for Junk in the Trunk is a good idea if you want to set up a slingshot toprope, since the anchor for this route is set about 10 feet back from the top. Otherwise belay your climber from the top, then rap from the anchor.|
