Description

This route contains a little of everything: face climbing, a chimney, a hand crack, along with some offwidth. How can it not be your style? Start on the far northwest side of Sisyphus Tower near a chimney.

Pitch 1 – 5.6, 45 feet: climb the chimney to a good belay ledge on the northeast arete of the tower, and belay off gear.

Pitch 2 – 5.10+,100 feet: from the belay ledge, cut right, and follow a series of cracks up small ledges (5.8-9). Milk the rest before the technical face climb (crux, protected by 3 bolts) which leads to a short physical offwidth. A great hand crack guides you out of the physical offwidth. Finish on an easy 5.8 offwidth to a bolted anchor.

To reach the summit, continue another 20 feet past the anchor to the summit (5.2-5.4).

NOTE: a 70m rope barely reaches the bottom of the west side of the tower from the anchor. Tie knots at the end of your rope! If you do not have a single 70m rope, TWO 60m ropes are REQUIRED for the descent.

Protection

A double set of cams & nuts. A BD C4 #4 and a #5 are highly recommended for the second pitch.
