Bird’s Eye Slab Route, 5.8, 5 pitches
FA- O.Miskiw and G.McDougall, July 2011
The latest addition to a slowly growing number of routes on Wasootch Tower, this one being on the south-east face and easier to access than Red Balloon(the somewhat bolted line of the NW Ridge). Looks nice go do it!
Park as for Wasootch Slabs, and hike up the valley until under Wasootch Tower. Continue under its face and around until the face you see in the photos attached here can be recognized.
Scramble up the South Wasootch Tower Creek which runs to the east of the tower. Walk up this, and up a scree cone(flagging) to the top of the scree and forest cone.
Continue walking and scrambling easterward up a gully and over a scree rib then you can rope up for the first pitch which is atop a hump. From here follow the topo supplied by Orvel.
To descend rappel as for the other Wasootch Tower routes that end at the summit, via bolted anchors on the SE/SW backside facing the col. And once you are officially off the rock hike out along a trail to the west through forest and eventually back to the Wasootch Creek and the many throngs of tourists and sport climbers.
