Vestal Virgin is actually an unfinished project with the top half done. The first pitch from the ground has yet to be done. I invite anyone to come out and finish it for me. It could take me a few more years to get'er done. The lower section looks to be 5.5-5.7 with some possible natural protection.


Scramble to the top of the Temple of Ishtar formation. Rappel to anchors.


Quickdraws, bolts

Vestal Virgin ascends the left side of the broad knobby buttress right of the water polished gully between the Tower of Babel and Temple of Ishtar, past two widely spaced bolts. There are 5 bolts on the summit of the Temple of Ishtar, two of which have hangers, but are NOT equipped with rings or chains for rappelling. FA: Spider Savage & Steiner- 2001 Oct 27, 2011
