The available descent info on Texas Tower is a bit vague, or the descent is not obvious. Perhaps that adds to the experience.
When Josh S. and I climbed this in 4/09, we missed the 2nd rap station, left our own gear somewhere on the east face, but 1 rap later eventually joined up with the bolted anchors of the East Face route.
I thought maybe we were just chumps, but it looks like we weren't the only ones to get confused on the rappels, as I saw Kalous and Thesenga's trip report: thecleanestline.com/2012/03/te...
To their credit, they were in the dark and it was snowy.
