Great Photographic Opportunities!

Description 

The common routes are on the west- and south-facing sides of the formation. The scramble up to the shoulder is a bit long but not bad. The first pitches are in loose, chaucey rock but the Sailor's themselves are good!


Getting There 

About a mile past the BLM sign and map, which is just up from the water crossing on the east entrance to Valley of the Gods, you will find a dirt track on the left that runs down to a couple of camp sites along the (normally) dry creek bed, a.k.a. Lime Creek. Hike west out of the creek bed and across the plain in the direction of the obvious formation (Seven Drunken Sailors). Upon reaching the base, one can choose to scramble up steep, loose, and chausey rock to the formation's shoulder or go right, up a sand dune - the apex gets you above the bad rock and then you can cut back to your left, south, and get on the formation's shoulder. Either way - 35 minutes - from vehicle to base of climb. Located at: 37.243209, -109.824443

So many sailors, so little time...(#4)

First pitch is a bit of an off-width but has peripheral cracks to protect. The rock isn't bad. The second pitch is the hoot! The stronger climber must mount the shoulders of the second in order to gain purchase above a loose overhang. Two moves and it's over, no protection required, just balls! Then the leader must hoist a bit to get the second over the hump enough to gain purchace and make those two moves. Different, but fun! ...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
