Description

Aeolian Hollow climbs a fun chimney-type feature through a layer of incredibly cross-bedded sandstone to a delightful perch above Boynton Canyon. There is a fantastic view of a multi-storey cliff-dwelling complex from the top. Pair this with Sinagua Spire for a swell afternoon.

Start at the saddle, working your way up the varied crack system on ledgy mudstone. Jam through a nice hand crack and huddle into the depths of the hollow. Climb up and out through the featured offwidth roof (crux). Continue up the fun easy groove tube to a two-bolt anchor on the left pillar with luxurious bench-style seating.

Rappel 100 feet from chains.

Location

See area page for approach directions, then follow a faint game trail up to the saddle on the uphill (east) side of Sinagua Spire. This is the obvious west-facing chimney feature rising directly above the saddle.

Protection
