climbed this nasty bugger with derek, combined free and aid climbing at 5.9 C1. 1st pitch was hard(5.11- free) yet straight forward. 2nd pitch traverse was a different, freaky animal with sketchy pre-bolt climbing. the swing into the cave above the traverse will never be forgotten!
overall, a super tower!
Shirley and I did this one with Brad (www.piquaclimber.com) & Paul. Led in one pitch (Reign Of Terror) at about 5.9 & free a la France...Mistakenly got on Rain Of Dust and took an hour to downaid the 20 feet of mud back to ground (have a looksee at this one when there). For comparison, NE Ridge on Kingfisher looked like granite 2 days later.
