Comments: Ryan: That was the way the second pitch was first done. Larry Coats and I were coming back up canyon and I talked him into walking up to this. I led the first and he led the second, going out right. The next time, we went up to do pitches 3 & 4 and we switched leads. I went left and it seemed much easier so... I can't recall if we did pitch 3 that time or not. We made a few attempts as Larry describes, coming back down to get different gear.

Never rapped off the descent. It was always a ... more >>

Comments: Regarding:
"The best thing that could happen to this tower is for someone to rap bolt some rap anchors every 30 meters down the North face" (cuz the route gets so busy?)

There is a very clean rap down the Pegasus face.
NNE or N or E face? I still think this is more the N face than the East and Google maps seems to agree. But either way, it's the wider face on your left hand side as you approach from the saddle with the big old yellow jack on the ledge one pitch up.

I think the top anchors ... more >>

Comments: A small bit of history: First person to tell me about this area I believe was Paul Horak and that would have been ~'88. He had climbed here some and kept telling me to get up there for the crack climbing.

Jean DeLataillade also mentioned the area to me, he needs to chime in on what he remembers about the area and Bertrand Gramont's activities.
This was when Cochiti Mesa and area was very active but I recall hearing about folks spending time here.

Finally, I believe John Duran spent quite a b... more >>

Comments: Well, that was one long time to what was probably the second ascent.
Good job...
As I recall, the occasion for Fig and DB being up north was the last (unknown at the time) one of Baxer's Syndicato banquets... Steve, Herb North, Peter Noebles all came up from down south.

Seems like we also did something else backup in there on the same day (besides Dr Rubos). Or maybe I just went over and Steve tossed us all a rope down this climb so we had a gang on the summit. I'll have to ask him what he... more >>
