Description

The supernova Pillar is high quality featured granite with a variety of cracks and face climbs. The temps in this area are generally relatively cooler than the south face of Suicide or Tahquitz. A great place to go after descending off the Dark Angel Buttress to cool off in the late afternoon with south facing single pitch climbs.

Getting There

Hike up the North-side Tahquitz climbers trail towards the north gully descent on Lily rock, but veer left towards the Cloud Ripper towers on talus fields. Stay just below the Cloud ripper towers and head uphill from the furthest left bottom corner of CRT towards the Hallway of the Gods. Walk along the base of the Creation Pillars until you see stacks of pillars near the center bottom of the formation.

I mind... i'd prefer a limit on bolts in the idyllwild backcountry. been on many of the rocks over the years and most summits can be top-roped/ descended without convenience bolts, but this is a whole'nuther discussion.

AND, I really do mind poorly placed bolts... and "gnar gnar holes" Nov 13, 2016
