Description

This route climbs a scrappy pile of rubble very close to the road 1 mile north of Rock Point, Ariz. The formation is on the east side of the highway. The rock is so soft and poor, that this climb probably never should have been climbed. It is pathetic and a waste of time to even THINK about doing this climb. Someone was VERY bored to have even considered climbing this heap.

Location

Just east of the road 1 mile N. of Rock Point, Arizona.

Protection

Take some cams and a bunch of slings you will have to leave to get off.

This was my first climb on the Reservation when I moved there in 1982; it was close to the road, and it had crack systems;..sort of. I went there after work with a non-climbing co-worker whom I just met. I showed him how to belay and took off; the rock was so pathetic and the climbing so horrible; I got up on this rubble pile, and now I was wondering how I has to get back down. I had to tie a bunch of slings together around a piece of rock that I didn't think would turn to sand with body weight;.....I didn't like leaving all those slings , for I only had so many , and there wasn't a climbing shop within hundreds of miles to replace them. Then it got dark. Some Navajos that had been watching us (And cracking up I might add....);...they went and got their pick-up trucks and turned their headlinghts on the formation so I could see what I was doing. I was my "welcome to Navajo sandstone" climb. There actually ARE many very cool climbs on the Res;...this is NOT one of them. It was a big adventure for such a small pile of rock. It sucked.
