Description 

WEAR PANTS! This climb is good training for doing chimneys. The start is akward but once you are in the chimney the climbing is good and there are opportunities for pro. The crux is exiting the chimney onto a small ledge. The route finishes with a low angle hand crack. If you top rope this climb use a directional in the hand crack.

Protection 

The climb takes small to medium size cams in cracks in the chimney. If you have a number 5 cam it will fit in the back of the chimney after the start. You can use a #3 to protect the move getting into the chimney. However, this is not mandatory. Bolt Anchors and rap rings at the top of Tower Two.
