Red Square Towers



The obvious chimney system between the towers can be stemmed to the top. Descend from bolt at top or downclimb. (bolt has hanger and quickdraw as of 2001) H

This route has been the the subject of much controversy over the years, and many have been arrested for scaling this forbidden spire. The route was bolted every 10 ft or so in the 70s with hangerless 1/4" bolts. Most would forego a rope and solo up and down the 180 feet. However, during a 1999 ascent which lead to a public arrest, the lower 3/4 of the route's bolts were chopped. There is now only about two or three remaining bolts near the top. Be careful when scaling these towers due to PI patrols every 15 minutes.
