Description

Perhaps half way up to Morrel's Wall from the old parking there is a free standing pinnacle. Route is on the downhill (north) side of the formation. Tricky slab moves bring you to a steeper headwall to the topout. I remember being able to go either right or left to finish, both seemed about the same in difficulty.

From Glen Dickenson, one of the FA party:
"Route was originally done by Glen Dickinson, Jim Zahn and John Ficker in 1984. Jim Zahn placed the bolt and gave the next lead to Glen who made it to the top without adding another bolt. We talked about adding another bolt but if I had the right gear I could have put in a couple of pieces so we left it as it was led FA."

Location

Half way or so from parking to Morrel's Wall. I have tried to follow the new parking regs, but it looks like the Morrel's parking lot is similar to before?

Protection

As January 2005, there were old buttonhead bolts and just one buttonhead on top.

Edit: as of January 2018 the bolts have been upgraded to modern hardware.

I highly doubt the bolts have been upgraded on this route. I have seen upgraded rappel anchors in the McDowell's on popular walls, but I'm guessing that nearly all of the protection bolts are 20+ years old based on my experiences. Aug 31, 2010

I haven't been to verify but apparently there are two new bolts as of Jan 2018

No need to verify. The original bolts have been replaced with stainless 1/2" hardware. Thanks to the Central Arizona Bolt Replacement Program and the ASCA. Aug 4, 2018
