Description

Start: on the south-southwest side, under an obvious crack system.
Climb up the cracks to the summit. This will probably go free. It was blowing a fierce windstorm all day when we climbed this. Rock is mostly good, but the summit area rock is paler and softer.

Location

Princess Bong is in the Viewfinder Towers, about five miles north of Hanksville. This tower is the southernmost tower on the west side of the road, almost directly across from Planet X. Approaching from the north, this is the last tower on the right, before the road crests a hill and descends towards Hanksville.

Protection

Gear: standard rack. Drilled anchors at top, rappel north side, single rope

Anyone know who owns the red line that is fixed on this route or why it is there? It has been there since spring. Nov 24, 2011
