Comments: Good route - characteristic of the 'short but sweet' nature of a lot of the climbs in this area.

Comments: great shot - really conveys the raw connection to the earth that climbing in the desert makes us feel.

Comments: Interesting and varied. And clean. I wish there were more climbs like this at Blair. I also wish I had a million dollars.

Comments: Spectacular. The Aces and headwall are great, but for me, the 'endless' 3rd and 4th class above the headwall is what made the route amazing. My partner and I just kept saying "wow!!!" I was struck by how solid most of the rock was, given the elevation.

We gained the ridge via the gully on the NW or N side of Ypsilon Lake, which was very straightforward. It is easily visible on the opposite side of the lake. For descent, we st... more >>

Comments: More than any other that I have done, this route gives you a taste of the full spectrum of Zion climbing. A true classic!

Comments: I will attempt to add some information - although my experience on this route is somewhat dated (from a solo ascent in the late 1990's), I would call it more like A3+. Since it doesn't get much traffic, I doubt if the difficulty has changed that much. The 3rd pitch is probly the crux, although the first and second pitches have some nervy spots as well. I recall a fair amount of thinnish nailing, but not long strings of scary stuff. I enjoyed it and thought it was a good route.

Comments: Tony B's comments on the last pitch brought back some spooky memories for me - my experience was very similar. I remember that little creosote bush - its base is/was about as thick as your pinkie. This was about 1996...

Comments: For many years, a casual flip through my Wind River guidebook would always end up in my spending several minutes leering at the description and photo of this route. Now that I've finally gotten in there and climbed it, I don't think I'd bestow it with the hallowed 'classic' status that the venerable Mr. Kelsey does/did. However, that might have something to do with the fact that we started waaaaay off-route (too far to the right, in the 'hideous chute') and basically missed the first 4 pitches... more >>

Comments: The squeeze chimney on p2 is pretty tight- I almost got stuck (32" waist). Do have a couple larger pieces for the second pitch.

Comments: My comments are for p.1 only- haven't tried the 2nd pitch (McCarthy West Face route)...

A little different from most Tower pitches that I've climbed, this one features a stress-type fracture that runs up and down one particular column (as opposed to the typical crack here that actually separates the columns). Interesting and sustained climbing, but with a couple of good rests. A #1 and a couple of #0.75 camalots for the thin hand crack below the roof, with doubles of smaller cams ... more >>
