Comments: Nice work fellas! Looking at that crack in the past, I assumed it would take a lot more nailing. Well done.

Comments: Nathan Sydnor and I recently freed this route. Nate led the first pitch free, which we think weighs in at about 12-. The second pitch went at a very sandy mid 11. A lot of the climbing features awesome varnish but you should expect a veneer of sand.

Comments: We climbed the south face on 8/22/14 and the route did not come into the sun until after 12:30. We approached from the parking area by traversing the rim to the ridge that extends out towards the towers. From the North side of the ridge, fix a single 70(or 60?) to get down to a point where you can scramble down and traverse over to the saddle.
Two 60s will get you back to the saddle from the summit of the tower. From the saddle, rap straight down from bolts on the base of the tower. Two 7... more >>

Comments: This map is excellent! One thing I noticed is that the Kachina Towers (16) are labeled in the incorrect location. The place marker is in the mouth of Dubinky Wash which is roughly 2 miles west of the actual towers. Thanks for sharing!

Comments: On P1, our rope got stuck to the point that the second had to jug the fixed/stuck line. It appears that the drag could be reduced or eliminated by placing a directional cam in the horizontal break at the lip of the roof after pulling the roof. This would pull the rope out away from the roof itself.

Comments: I'm sure its been done by now, but Jim Madore and I freed the route back in late April. We broke up pitch two by belaying in the base of the chimney. We interpreted "a few larger cams" as two #4s, a 5, and a 6. This felt a little light since the entirety of pitch two is wide. We recommend a few more. The bolt out on the lip was nice.

Comments: The crack is wider now. The pillar is slowly falling away and climbers will notice that their grabers fit into the crack way more than they used to.
