Description

Full-on adventure climbing: take a small rack and some draws, two ropes to get down off the biggest sprire, and head up. Climbs are a mix of crack-protected trad climbing and bolted faces. Do them all! (Consult Greg Opland's Phoenix Rock II if you want more details)

Location

Hike up the road from the locked gate, and head uphill at an appropriate spot. Count on an hour for the approach.

Protection

Small rack and draws

Climbed this about a year ago. Approach is about 4 hours, climb is about 1 hr., deproach is about 3 hrs. The summit is spectacular, the climb is fun but- has plenty of rotten rock (endemic in this area).
You WILL have the entire summit to yourself. Dec 18, 2013
