Scott Conners leads exposed 3rd pitch of Pitfalls ...


These are the formations one sees across the canyon as you round the bend near the 7 cataracts pullout. They are a bit of a pain to access so you will never have a crowd. The towers are tall and have a lot of exposure. Good rock with tons of new route potential.
