Looking up at Sky Pilot Route which follows clean ...


This is a very secluded, exposed pillar seen up above the Ra Formation. It is one of the capstone cones that give this area its name Cone Mountain.

Getting There 

Follow directions as for Ra, but continue up gully to a point and exposed ledge system diagonalling back up and west to its base. Or climb a route to top of Ra summit and walk over to it.

Climbing Season

For the Empire area.
