Comments: My partner and i attempted to climb this route the last week in june approximately 3 years ago it was by far the stupidest thing i've ever attempted. we were out of water by time we reached the base at about 8am (it was all ready 90 degrees) climbed the first two picthes and raped down. by the end of the hike back i had severe heat stroke. afterwards i drank about 2 gallons of water within the next couple of hours and still didnt pee until the next morning. however to make a happy ending there w... more >>

Comments: this climb is a great alternative if there are people on tunnel vision. the day i went to climb tunnel vision there was a party of three just starting the 1st pitch so we went and did group therapy. route finding was alittle tough at times(we had very little beta) but its a great day out. go check it out; real fun

Comments: i carried up to a #3BD and a #11 hex(the cow Bell). Not once did i wish i had more. i placed the #11 hex at one point. as i remember there was plenty of places of smaller pro and some bolts. i didn't mean to make it sound like the chimney was lined with bolts but going light will make your whole experience better.

Comments: real fun route. leave the big gear in the car since there's a couple bolts in the chimney. you'll be happy to not have to lug around big cams. the pitches after the chimmy are real fun; some real nice face climbing. the walk off is long and rocky so don't forget something to hike down in. the route finding can be tricky after the tower.

Comments: this was my first climb in RR and was super fun. it has alittle bit of everything. show up early to get a start on everyone else. my partner and i were there by 8am and had the route to ourselves for about an hour. we past about three parties coming down, so be careful where you throw your ropes.
