This route follows the face to the left of the popular Ashtar Command route. The anchors for both pitches share the standard rappel route off of the tower. There are a handful of run-outs between fixed gear, so bring a light rack.

P1: Start on the left arete of the tower and face climb up to the first bolt at 20ft. A medium size cam might help protect these moves. A few mid-10 moves lead to the right and a couple more bolts. A run-out on easier ground leads to the final mid-10 moves on thin face.

P2: The second pitch is obvious from the belay. Clip a handful of bolts along a seam to a hard move to the left. This is a short pitch. (50ft, ~5.11a)


This mixed route follows the rap line to the left of Ashtar Command.
