Routes in Mt. Everest

Kangshung Face T 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c

Description

This is a fun little tower to tick if you're in the area. The rock isn't the greatest but the moves aren't too terribly difficult.
RAIN, WET ROCK and RAPTOR CLOSURES: The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Also please ask and be aware of Raptor Closures in areas such as CAT WALL and RESERVOIR WALL in Indian Creek Details

Getting There

This is a small tower located further up the dirt road from Homer and Marge/Crusty the Clown (see those pages for info on how to get there) but before you get to Hurrah Pass. The tower is right next to the road. Because it blends in well with the walls behind it, it can be hard to see from far away.

There's another obvious, smaller tower just up the road (maybe 100 feet?) from this one. It's not listed in Desert Rock III. From the top of Mt. Everest I could see slings on top and decided to give it a go. The route goes up the obvious weaknesses on the side that faces Mt. Everest. I climbed it free and clean at about 5.9. I don't think I placed any nuts, but I did place some C3s and several C4s. I also placed a #6 Friend right below the top. The crux for me was committing to some moves going over the roof. It's significantly more dirty and loose than Mt. Everest. There is a single bomber bolt on top with some cord and a biner attached to it. We left another sling and biner on top as well. Anyone know what this thing is called or who did the FA? Apr 1, 2009
