Y Tower!!! Ben K on the summit... sort of.

Description 

This tower is like a boulder problem with a hard mantle onto the summit. Climb on top of the bench between the two towers and place gear at your feet for the mantle onto the summit block. This was actually kind of heady. We slung a block that was kind of sketchy on the summit so treat our slings with suspect.

Location 

This is the tiny bolted tower on the far end of the group to the SW.

Protection 

some wide-ish pieces and cord for getting off.
