Description

The first 20' of this route is shared with Virgin Wool on Sheep Rock. Climb up the slabby sandy loose corner until you can cut right on a ledge to access the crack system on The Lamb. Place some small cams and start up the crack that quickly widens to hands, pass a small roof and a OW pod. Above the pod is some less straight forward climbing and a traverse left over a solid block to the belay.

From the belay climb 15' up the obvious OW/chimney and scramble to the summit. Down climb to the anchor. A spotter is nice.

Location

The route follows the crack system on the Northeast face of The Lamb.

Protection

Everything from tiny to a new #5 camalot. A few extra #2 and #3 camalots might be useful. One 60 meter rope is enough to get down. Anchor consists of 2 bomber drilled pins. Bleached webbing was replaced with brown cord as of 4/13/07.

Another Charlie Fowler climb;. Everyday doesn't have to be multi-pitch tower climbing. Here's another short, one pitch free climb, close to the road. Did this one with Cyndie Bransford and Tony Sartin in Mar. 1994;....it's fun;....Yeah; it aint' The Titan, but for those who "collect" desert tower summits.......well........ Apr 27, 2007
