Description 

A short 5.7 chimney gains the large ledge, then it heads straight up the face to the tower anchors. The climbing is thin and delicate with some crumbly mini-conglomerate near the top. This could make for an exciting sport pitch were it to be bolted.

Protection 

TR with bolted anchors. Access by one of the other routes on Montezuma's Tower.
