Description Suggest change

This was the first route done on the Tombstone Butte. The first pitch is the crux, where some overhanging boulder moves lead to the start of a great hand crack. The 2nd pitch follows the crack as it gets wider to a stance where the angle kicks back. An easy scramble leads to the top...cool summit

Location Suggest change

Striking crack system up the North corner of the butte.

Protection Suggest change

Standard desert rack with a few extra hand & fist sized cams
