Start just to the right of the main corner, stem your way into it and fire up with various stemming and crack technique to a roof. Pull around the right side and continue up the nice crack in a right facing corner above to the bolted anchor.


Just left of the Gin Ricky corner is a shorter, right facing corner with a roof about 2/3 of the way up, followed by a nice 1-2" crack.


RP's, Nuts and cams to a #1 Camalot. Double up on fingers to the #1. Pro is good.

Best route on the wall IMO if you climb the grade. Go for the onsight, it's strenuous and pretty wild, but the gear is great.

Its ok. Not best on the wall IMHO. It was actually my first 5.11d lead ever but i like stemming. After plaing blue alient its a bit runout. i placed RP which was 90%, then go to start of the crack up right- goor rest and pro.

I thought this was harder than the respective pitch on Cloud Tower. It's a shorter crux, but felt pretty desperate for me. I did fall on both of them though... but CT felt very reasonable in comparison.
