Comments: I put up a few routes here in the early 80's with Dan Dingle. They were on the north facing side lower down. I can remember one with a bolt or two. Seems like we had some weird home made hangers too. Can't remember what we called it. I think we did a few more right near that one.

Comments: Those were not the first routes done at the Winslow wall. I did some FA's there in about 82 or 83 with two locals who's names I can't remember and Ken Collier who still lives in Flag. I think the local guys (Ken would remember their names) had done a few routes before I got there. I believe I took Toula there one more time and then never went back because I couldn't get any of the Flagstaff sheeple climbers to go out there. After I moved to boulder in 84 I heard about the "discovery" of the ... more >>

Comments: Sorry, there is no published guide to Tamo. With the uncertain future of the park and access it is unlikely that there will be one.

Comments: This is a true classic and the face pitch is the best! It is one of the nicest pitches in Sedona. It was scary on the FA and probably just as scary now. I can't believe nobody has ever replaced those old bolt hangers. I think Mike made them from an old mailbox. What can I say we were dirt poor. I suggest pulling them out and replacing them with baby angles. Of course that would be scary. They were all drilled from stances with no hooks so the replacement can be done without much shenanigans.

Comments: I did the first ascent of this route/tower with Jim Erdman around 1990?. I led the first pitch and Jim led the second which is a sugary loose mess. It had this loose toadstool that could fall and kill the belayer. It might be gone now. We aided some on both pitches. Later, with Brian Smith, I traversed the limestone band to the left at the top of the first pitch to access the obvious wide crack on the south side. The traverse was easy but the crack to the top was pretty crummy like the origi... more >>

Comments: I just saw Pete mentioned in an article in Climbing and I'd like to find him again too. We were in grad school together at CU in the '80's. I can't seem to find him on the BHSU website. If anybody can forward my email to him I'd appreciate it.

Comments: I did this route in the early 80's with Tim Toula. It is a classic but unless somebody has added some bolts to the top the rap is horrifying. We rapped off a tiny bush that was trying to pull out of the crack it was growing from.
