Description

To reach the route, scramble up a few hundred feet until reaching the base of the pillar below the obvious seam.
Pitch 1- Climb up then slightly right to reach a single bolt anchor on a small stance.
Pitch 2- The crux pitch. Climb up the seam directly above the belay to a gray ledge with a single bolt anchor.
Pitch 3- Continue up the center of the pillar to another single bolt anchor.
The rest of the route continues up on mostly easier ground to the top of the formation. There are no more fixed anchors, and to descend we downclimbed the final four pitches back to the bolt at the top of pitch 3, and we rappelled off single bolt anchors to the ground.

Location

Just north of Uneva Mine Canyon entrance is a large pillar with a seam in it. The route climbs up the seam in the center of the pillar then continues to the summit of the formation.

Protection

A set of cams and a set of stoppers. 2 ropes.

Sorry about the one bolt . This is one of the early routes when we never really thought that anybody would be crazy enouth to repeat these climbs !!. We try to make sure the one bolt was good and the rap not very steep.All the later climbs have where needed double anchors rap/belays. Oct 31, 2007
