Description 

Cruise up to the base to the large flat area and find a couple high bolts that lead into the obvious crack system that splits the tower (big roof).

First pitch is the crux with a possible 30+ foot groundfall if the string of #1 Peckers blows.

Bust through the choss into better rock and find the bolted belay on a ledge.

Pitch 2 goes up and attacks the roof using the right thin crack. Cams in soft rock leads upward. Pull the roof to better rock and belay at the notch.

Scramble to the summit.


NOTE: Leave a rope fixed to the first belay station.

Protection 

10 #1 Peckers
8 #2 Peckers
5 #3 Peckers
triple rack of cams from Aliens to #5.
(2) #5s
