Lisa Foster on the first pitch of The Things We Do...
This route packs a fair punch in its 100 feet. Begin at an overhanging crack on the right side of the tower. (when viewed from the road)
Pitch one – Climb awkward C2 off the ground on less than stellar rock to a left facing corner. Continue up the corner to the notch at C2/A1. The anchor situation here is grim. There is a faded sling attached to what is presumably an anchor at the notch but the anchor itself is buried beneath a pile of rock and dirt that has fallen on it since the FA. I built an uninspiring anchor and decided to just clip it and continue on to the top. I had major rope drag so plan accodingly.
Pitch Two – Climb up and right past a bolt and a piton to a horizontal crack system that takes you out onto the face and leads to the summit. C2
Standard Desert Rack
A few baby angles? (in case any fixed pins are missing)
A couple screamers

Lisa on the first pitch.
Trying to find a way to get directly to the cracks...
It's a good day if it looks like this when you rap...
