Three pitches on the tower-like feature.
P1) Traverse on loose rock with no pro (5.7) to ledge and follow short C1 seam to fingers up a steep splitter 60'
P2) 5.9 loose rock, hands. 60'
P3) Steep right-leaning 4-5" offwidth splitter to 5.13 offwidth roof. The right leaning, wildly offset roof requires some serious circus trickery to surmount. Stout! 60'

Yeah, ive worked p1 for a few seasons now and am close. Hoping people will leave that lead for me as I've put so much time into it.
Pamela Shanti Pack freed the roof using insane beta to turn the lip! Congrats to her and the reason I posted the route on here.

i have driven past this and looked up at it for many years. i always kind of called it the king of the desert for some reason. awesome looking line that welcomes you to the creek. i wondered if anybody had done it, it was such a prominent line. i have no idea why, but i never walked up and looked at it. probably because it is really intimidating looking.
anyway, saw your rope on it (i think it was yours) maybe a year or so ago and it really intrigued me. who was up there checking it out? what;s it like? what did they find up there? thanks for posting it, i like the name. it looks like it would be easy to sit there loafing on the event horizon below that roof. kind of gives me some weird sort of closure!
