Amazing views throughout the whole climb.

  • Park at Wasootch Creek, Walk 2kms past the practice slabs
  • 5.7 Mixed- North Ridge

Following the drainage on the right side that leads to the base of the esthetic tower. Then hike up the faint forested trail to the beginning of the climb.

I found this to be a fun- easy scrambling route with quite a few pitons and bolts along the way. However, the rock is quite loose!
