Avg time to climb route: 3 days
Approach time: 1.5 hours
Descent time: 3 hours
Number of pitches: 11
Height of route: 700'
Overview
This route is steep and strenuous but technically easy because of the many bolts and fixed pieces. The Leaning Tower's airy start, steepness and strange rock texture give it a more ominous feel than the Prow, which is actually a little harder.
