DAS on the ground up FA.

Description 

Begin beneath the wide crack that is the base of the northern arete of this tower on a nice ledge. Ascend through the wide crack and then traverse right to a broken crack system with ample horizontal and vertical protection to the top. The anchors are placed to the right to enable the best belay ledge and rock quality.

Two bolt anchors with quick links and sections of chain to use to rap off from.

Location 

One of the lower towers of the area, accessed by climbing only slightly uphill and then traversing south to get to the base. It does not sky line and so may not immediately seem like a tower. But it is!

Protection 

Single rack of cams to #4, though there are ample options for good gear.
