|Willis Tower - Get Your Stick and Lie Down. || |
Start up a chimney-like crack, on softer, crumbly rock. After reaching a ledge, some good jams lead to a wider crack with stems to the top.
The hardest part for us was finding the tower. You can see the tower from Hwy. 191, up near the rim. We'd looked up at it several times, and decided to hike up to climb it. We wandered the length of Hidden Valley before finding it on the way back. Stay close to the valley's edge, overlooking Hwy. 191, until you look down on the tower.
Cams to a #3 Camalot, medium and small pieces.
Anchor on top.
