Located in the center of the shady North face of the Faulty Tower. Scramble up 3rd class terrain and lean out to clip the first bolt on the lip of the roof. Crank over the crux roof and then climb up on large, slopey holds to a juggy horizontal crack. head up and right on the horizontal and then continue straight up to the last bolt. At the last bolt cut hard left to an annoying anchor clip at a non-stance.

This would be a lot better route with the anchor moved a foot or two.

Fun move between first and second bolt; then nice climbing with straightforward moves until the anchor. I am 5'7" and could not clip the anchors from the last semi-decent stance-so the moves here were much harder than 10b for me.

Worn, open shuts have been replaced with new stainless steel bolts and mussy hooks. Paid for with donations collected at Wilson's Eastside and the Rubber Room.

In regards to the "new anchor," the right hanger is spinning and the bolt is poking out a bit, the rock looks a little eroded behind the left hanger, maybe from when it was drilled. The route has a nice location, fun moves.
