This is a decent route. It's located in the center of the south face of the formation. The crux is the right slanting crack on the upper face. Be sure to hyperventilate before you take off up the crack.


Standard rack. Make sure you have some medium to medium+ cams for the crux.


Nice bit of flaring hand jamming at the crux section. rap off the back. Dec 18, 2005

Call of the West is a nice climb. A few interesting moves on rattley jams in the flare at the crux. Take a couple #3 Camalots. Dec 8, 2010
Some fun moves interspersed with easier terrain, but this routes best feature is its length. Almost feels like you get a full pitch of climbing in! Closer to 100' than the 60' listed here.

Bolted rap anchor could use some love. Currently sports two button heads, one with a rusty, paper-thin old Dolt hanger. Dec 29, 2012
