Description

Start from ground to roof is kinda hard, route goes up then right to easier ground. Trend back left mostly. Follow cracks to large pine tree on ledge 160' above. Lots of face climbing with occasional crack moves/pro. Very clean with occasional steep sections but it's mostly vertical.

Location

Walk along main wall ledge 100yds past Indecent Exposure's overhang to the next overhang and start on it's far side. Look for the pine tree on the ledge 160' above, keep heading for it when climbing. Single 60m rope and two raps, second rap on tower above arete.

Protection

Very thin pro (nuts/tcu) to #4 camalot; 12 long runners would help rope drag; bolted anchor.

With a bit more traffic this route will clean up nicely and easily be a 3 star fun trad line. It's wandery, but that's part of the fun. May 2, 2011

Dave, this is a remembrance posting for you.

I still see you kneeling across the canyon by that pool of water, living and breathing effortlessly and perfectly for the last time. Many seasons have come and gone in Iso since then: desert flowers bloomed, rain fallen, winds played, landscape shadows grown then vanished--all those shifting moments of nature to be forgotten by someone eventually. But the nuances of time, place, and season on that particular day with you is preserved eternally there for me in all its detail of an Arizona canyon springtime on the Rim.

Rest in peace....I'll always wish I could have done more.
