Comments: The 5.9 moves from the top of the pillar to the anchors step right and go around the face. Best to not place any pro if doing this step right, or you will have bad rope drag. Going straight up the face looks more like 5.10 and unprotectable with fall potential back to the pillar.

Comments: At the top of the 2nd pitch is an old fixed pin with a ring. We left a cord equalized with a block on 8/16/15 and a locking biner to rap off of. We had a single 70 and had to leave an additional sling/biners at the top of the first pitch (I anticipate these will soon disappear). I think a pair of 60's would get you to the ground from the top of the second pitch. This would be a fantastic place for some anchor/rap bolts as the upper pitches deteriorate and are seldom done. The second pitch is one... more >>

Comments: Totally safe route, despite the ST description. Short crux and then more mellow climbing. Not great, but ok and worth doing if you're there.

Comments: Comments on pitches 7-10: as per the comments here we moved up off of the left side of 12 o' clock ledge and started the right facing corner. It was a 5.6ish pitch to the base of the chimney, on the right side of Tibetan tower. The next pitch (8)was the chimney itself. The start and chimney was ok but the rock at the top of the chimney was terrible, with lots of loose dangerous flake to get up to the tree (there are bolts climbers left on top of the tower). I would not recommend finishing the c... more >>

Comments: Truly a classic route. However, there are some loose blocks and questionable flakes. Especially the flake looming at the start of the 4th pitch. Very hard to avoid standing on it, it's huge, it moves, and is right over your belayer...be careful!

Comments: I don't think the rap from the top of the route would go with a 70m. Ours came up short. Luckily we had a second rope. A #4 is useful to protect the offwidth on the second pitch.
