Steep but short, strenuous but well protected. One of a handful of very nice ways to the top of the crag from the top of the Wiessner Slab. A short winter afternoon spent climbing Wiessner's and then Tower Crack in plastic mountaineering boots, on lead, is an exciting diversion from Connecticut's uneven ice climbing conditions.

Nice route. I would agree with everything Paul says - steep, short, and strenuous. The crack is actually smaller than it appears from the ground, and protects well with a couple stoppers and some medium-sized cams. Makes a great exit pitch off Wiessner's Slab.
