DescriptionOn the Teasdale Road from the intersection of Highway 12 & 24, find the obvious cluster of mini towers and rocks at the north end of the Cockscomb Ridge.
On the east side of a formation that has an old abandoned Hobo camp on the (opposite) West side of the formation, find an OW crack that leads to a bolted arete to a tower top. Fun little teaser for the kids or those new (or old!) to climbing.
Pitch #1: An easy wide crack starts at a small tree on a sandstone ledge. Climb up past the crack to an arete passing three glue in bolts to a two-bolt belay at the top. 5.6, 22m.
Rappel from the top.
LocationEasy access and great approach. It is a real little teaser....because it is more fun than you expect.
ProtectionAn unknown relatively new looking poorly placed (with stud bolts) stacked washer chain anchor is on a ledge on the west side of the tower...(to protect a TR?....) right above a very chossy looking crack in very soft rock. Three Glue In protection bolts to two Glue In Bolt rap/belay station.
Additional protection available with a #3 and #4 (#5 optional) Camalot on the route.
