Description

The Tombstone Pit is a small, somewhat enclosed area that is home to seven routes which are found on the on the north and south faces of some small "pinnacles". Routes range from 5.7 - 5.10d with most being in the 5.10 range.

This may help in visualizing the routes here as well - the anchors for the route Better Luck Next Time (5.10d) are actually located on the other side of the block with Firepower (5.10d).

Getting There

The Tombstone Pit is located slightly southheast of the the Claim Jumper Wall, and approched by either walking along the base of Skyy Slab or by scrambling up from the eastern end of the Claimjumper Wall (easier without packs).

Jeff, basically all of the anchors for the climbs allow for you to reach the top of their respective faces. Nov 5, 2018

Thanks. I was thinking more along the line of being able to stand on top of the tower. Nov 10, 2018
