It is presently illigal to climb on the Navajo Indian Reservation. These climbs are listed here for historical purposes only.
This is a fantastic climb on a large formation with an awesome summit. Pitch one; Climb up a large dihadral/corner system, past two bolts, past 5.9 Owth section to a belay from 2 FP on the left. There are a few loose blocks on this pitch as well, so be careful. Pitch 2; climb up the dihedral more (past 2 bolts) into a chimney (squeeze) and a belay ledge just past the notch on the left. (Triple bolt belay/rap station). Pitch three; Climb up past one bolt, to a thin aid crack which widens to hands, then leads to a belay with 3 bolts. The 4th pitch ascends a bolt ladder with 17 bolts in a row. The bolts traverse up and right around the backside of the formation.
This formation is East of the main Tribal Loop and is approached from the main highway via dirt roads that lead towards the formation.
