Just thought I'd share my ascent video: [[


Finally made it to a bucket-list climb; the Ancient Art spire in Moab, UT and did the stolen chimney 5.10 route this spring... After watching every video on Youtube of this summit, I was finally able to make my own. Also, for anyone out there who is wanting to do Stolen Chimney 5.10 on this spire, very little trad gear is needed if you are are comfortable with 5.8 climbing. I only used one cam and about 3 hexes for the entire route. If you can make it to Moab, this climb is definitely a must-do. The craziest thing about this climb was how crumbly and sandy the "rock" was.. I'm not sure that the rock could stay intact in the case of a whipper..
