The original Desert Rock has this route going up from the Southeast. We found no evidence of a plausible route fostering from that side.

P1: Approach the tower from the Northwest climb up and onto the bench separating it from the rim. From the bench, climb the farthest right of three crack systems (5.10 crux) into a deep chimney and belay at old bolts. 100'.

P3: A cool pitch! I won't spoil it for you, but figure it out and bust a semi-sketchy, one move wonder onto the summit. 5.11.

Go back the way you came.

This is a variation to the origonal route sharing the top pitch with the Bazaar Route, the first ascentionists really hit it up from the northeast in some deep, ugly looking chinmeys. Harvey clocked the original routes pitches in at 5.8 A3; 5.7; 5.7; and 5.8 A2.


This is on the bench directly above Tiara Rado golf course.


Single Friends from #0.5 - #6 / a few small TCUs / red, yellow, blue Camalot.

One seventy gets you down in two raps, may work with a sixty with a bit of easy dc'ing. No need to bring a six, but double up on BD fours.
