It is presently illigal to climb on the Navajo Indian Reservation. These climbs are listed here for historical purposes only.
Round Rock S E corner route does have "moki" steep carved into the rock;...for awys too;...but then it turns into loose chinmey and crack climbing;.....at about 5.8. From Eric's description in Desert Rock, he says there are moki steps AND protection bolts added by climbers. We saw the Moki steps, and , I believe , some belay anchors, but there was moderate 5th class climbing, and we were surprized;...(Them Anasazi were good climbers, no doubt.)
This route is located on the squat , large Mesa called round rock.. The formation is next to the awesome Chinle Spire, and just west of the settlement of Round Rock. Dirt Roads take you right to it. Snoop around until you find the Moki steps. Rap the route.
