Rugged high desert canyon with many southeast facing towers, domes and spires. The Tombstone is on the front range of Hands Canyon. This area is secluded desert backcountry climbing at its finest. Many routes exist already and many have yet to be done. Since this area gets very little traffic it is advised to wear a helmet. Some of the rock can be friable while most of it is high quality.
Geir's approach topo for the Tombstone is helpful in getting started. Instead of going uphill towards the Tombstone head southeast towards the Hand. Getting established in the Hands drainage proper is the crux of the approach. Once you are heading up the drainage you will see an abundance of green and yellow granite to your left featured with many cracks and chimneys.
