Comments: To make matters even more confusing the dance (Tarantella) is actually referencing the spider (tarantula)

Cheers!

Comments: The fixed pin was installed after two lead attempts with out it....

The gear is pretty much non-existent due to the flairing nature of the crack. A ground fall would pretty much be guaranteed if one botched the transition from the squeeze with out the pin.

Comments: excellent route!!!

most belays are single pin (except the top of p2), so you may want a couple extra pieces for that.

highly suggested!!!!

Comments: with all of the classics that dingus has established, this route just doesn't fit the standard. a shame of a route really. with the crux having the largest run-out, maybe only 15 feet, and then stances above where you can clip two bolts with out moving...wtf.

was thinking it was only done to piss off the park service? maybe

loose rock, that seems to be getting looser....

Comments: we attempted the line in the center of the picture....two cracks right of the skunk and two left of your route, thinking it was a new line. We discovered a couple chopped (removed) anchors and a fixed head at the roof....any idea who the fa party was, and when ?

Comments: Best seasons are spring and fall, although if you chase the shade, you can avoid the summer heat, its a huge sun dial!

Comments: There are definitely better routes at the tower, don't waste your time.

Of the 30 routes I've climbed here, this one and the first pitch of dump watt are the bottom two on the list. (although i heard that 'dump watt' was popular, and much cleaner in the 80's.)

don't get me wrong: "even the bad routes are good", but there are WAY better lines to be climbed at the Devils Tower

Comments: Haha,

nice shot, the time i posted it, got teased, because i obviously yammed on the last few pieces.

Franks old hostess, Lisa, about to clean a million pieces of gear!!!

very good route btw, hard to imagine dereck hersey onsight soloing that thing!!!

edit: i found carol's crack to be much easier than mr clean, along with the direct sw. maybe because the other two are locker fingers compared to the tight hands here.

Comments: Franks description (from rc.com)

This First Pitch was first climbed in August, 1989 by Frank Sanders , solo.

Pitch 1. (140ft, 5.7, A3) Free climb, then aid up the corner. As height increases, the crack diminishes. The final 1/3 of the pitch is accomplished on hooks, RURPS, "heads" and a few tied-off blades. There is air to catch, but nothing to hit, Really. A 3-bolt belay rewards your efforts.

Pitches 2 & 3 were added in October 2007 by Patrick Kingsbury, Frank Sanders, with Faithful belays... more >>

Comments: It is possible to toprope this route by climbing 'Spank the Monkey' (5.10d), which is one crack system to the right. 2 ropes needed.

Comments: although the route looks grassy from below, you are actually climbing the crack on the right face, which is quite clean; and proves to be another tower classic!

on a side note, this is pitch one of layton kor's 'saber' route, first climbed in 1964

Comments: If your gonna climb the one-way sunset, i'd highly suggest climbing the complete route, alittle loose towards the top, but excellent none the less.
