Overview of Hands Canyon from fixed wing aircraft.  Golden Buttress noted.  Almost every free-standing spire in this photo has been climbed.  I encourage you to hike up the drainage and explore.  You will find many bolted faces and climbed cracks that are awaiting 2nd ascents. If you see fixed gear, rest assured there will be a bolted rap route or walk-off.  Bring slings to leave on rap bolts (they often lack rings or chains).  Enjoy the adventure!
