Great tower to knock out in a morning. Not as heavily trafficked as the more famous towers, but far better climbing than north chimney of Castleton or Ancient Art. Stem box is by far the best move on the route. Two bulges on the first pitch seemed to be the crux of the climb for me. Overhanging summit pitch does look nasty, but when you get on the pitch you find some great holds and it's no problem to top out with a mantel.

I agree with other comments on the net, this route is probably underrated. Kind of a cool tower route, not a whole lot unlike Stolen Chimney, but not near as popular. The stem box was really a fun pitch. The summit is more scary to look at than actually do. No less stable than Ancient Art's summit block. That 3rd pitch is not 5.9, just 5th class up to the summit belay station. A relativly quick tower to sneak in on a visit.
