The Dark Tower climbs the front of the buttress that’s home to the Inner Chi. Begin in a left-facing corner, climb up the corner until bolts are visible out left on the face, heading for the left side of the large roof above. Pull through the roof on improbable but fun moves to ledge with a bolted belay. Pitch 2 winds its way up the patina-covered face above to another bolted station on a ledge. Pitches three and four continue up slabby ground to the top of the buttress.
Rack: 2 ea to 3.5”, nuts, quickdraws, 2 ropes.
Descent: rappel the route.
