Comments: You can now rap from the top of pitch 3 with one rope, rappelling down Operation Condor. There are chains equipped for this to be a standard single rope rap route.

Comments: Climbed the first 4 pitches. Stellar!

We then bailed due to sun. As of the end of July, it gets shade till 1, then full sun.

Good rock, easy approach, fun moves.

Comments: What a line! Matty VB and I climbed it on 12/13/12.

We were able to link p1/2 (extend under roof), p4/5 (with some simuling and a stance belay), p 8/9, an p13/14 (plan for rope drag).

Approach: chinle trail to huber wash, walk up the wash until it starts getting really blocky and steep. Look for cairns on the right, follow them up the steep dirt/san... more >>
