Comments: A great line that is a good shade option. I did the long first pitch as described by Jason, and thought it was an excellent Sandona pitch for the grade with lots of variety and mostly clean rock! Didn't see any bees thankfully.

Comments: I agree with Josie's recommended rack above, with her caveat that it's sufficient if you don't mind spacing out the cams a bit. We split the difference between her suggestion and the original rack beta, and definitely felt like we were hauling a decent bit of extraneous gear up the route.

P2 seemed pretty easy for the given 5.10.

I also disagreed with the given .11+ on P3. I don't usually downgrade or get too part... more >>

Comments: Thought this was a great mini-spire to do in combo with something on Summit Block Rock, as it's only a 5 minute jaunt between the two (stay high and come in on the limestone shelf).

First pitch is great, and I thought more in line with the original .11 than .11+.

I didn't think the second pitch rock quality was too bad at all and well worth it to summit. Surmount an awkward block to a ledge and up an .7/.8 chimney with no pro, tunnel through to the tow... more >>

Comments: Matt,
The original 2nd pitch went up a right-facing corner/chimney and was pretty junky as I recall. It kept the whole route at 5.7. FA: Pete Thompson, Trevor Bowman, Bryan Schmitz, Sept. 2005

Bush League Direct is more like 5.9ish. It cuts left from P1 belay ledge, past a short arête with a couple of bolts and up a groove feature to the top. Not great, but a better finish for sure. We put bolts in on top, but no chain as I recall. Walk off right or rap Balance of Power. FA: Trevor Bowman, Bry... more >>

Comments: A good route on a nice tower that should continue to clean up with a bit more traffic. We thought it felt a bit harder than Ben's ratings on both P1 and P2. I finished P2 with a new #5 Camalot still on my harness, although I could have left it down low on the pitch. I would have liked 3 #6 Camalots however, as the bulk of the pitch is this size. You can rap 3X with a single 70m rope. The route faces west and was shady until 2pm or so for us in mid-March, except fo... more >>

Comments: As Dougald commented, this is a great VOG route!

We freed the 1st and 2nd pitches. The 1st went around 5.10+. The rock and gear was decent I thought, with the most difficult moves involving some body english in the weird corner just off the ground, followed by intermittent fingerlocks and flat edges on both sides of the mini-corner. The 2nd pitch was fun and mostly good rock, although there were some large hollow features you climb on and around. I think it would be spookier to aid some of the... more >>

Comments: Just a couple of random additional beta bits: You can leave the #6 at the top of the 3rd pitch and retrieve on rappel, or you could leave it atop the 2nd pitch and swing over on rappel to grab it as mentioned in the descent beta above. You can leave the #5 camalots at the top of the 4th pitch (occidental pitch) and retrieve them on rappel. The final rappel to the ground (from the off-route chain anchors) is only 100' and can be done with one rope to save yourself ... more >>

Comments: It seems like this thing has had some recent traffic to help buff it out some; it was in pretty good shape today, although the top is sharp if you don't find the best (comfortized) holds. Added clip-and-lower setup to the existing rap rings with biners. Please replace rather than simply remove once they get worn.

Comments: Replaced the OG anchor on this today with stainless bolts and hangers courtesy of the ASCA. It is now a clip-and-lower setup, with biners in lieu of musseys (didn't have enough). Once these wear out (probably not for a good while with the scarce traffic up here), please replace the biners with some of your own and pat yourself on the back.

Comments: Replaced the antiquated anchor on this today. Wasn't able to pull one of the shuts with the crescent wrench I had, so it's still there for now. New stainless bolts and hangers courtesy of the ASCA and new clip-and-lower mussey setup courtesy of T-Bow.

Comments: Added clip-and-lower setup to the existing rap rings today. I didn't have enough mussey hooks, so it's currently one mussey and one biner. Hopefully the biner will get swapped out with a mussey at some point, but if it does get too worn before that, please replace rather than simply remove!

Comments: There were no bees present last weekend. This one worked me much more than Phantasm and seemed a good bit harder for the grade. I brought a purple C3 just in case, and found this very useful protecting the upper roof crux. I don't think anything larger would fit in the crack immediately beneath the roof.

Comments: Thank you Greg for the continuing stewardship in updating Rodeo Wall recently, and Hoback Shield awhile back! Your commitment to preserving and even enhancing the integrity of these routes you bolted decades ago is admirable.

Rock Climbs of the Eastern Big Horns Second Edition has been sent to printers 6/1/16. It should hopefully be back and in distribution at the end of July. PM me here if you would like a copy mailed. I will probably have some copies available by the end of June.

Comments: Top notch tower route for sure! There were several sections that wavered between #3 and #4 Camalot size. The old #3.5 Camalots or an equivalent piece would have been great to have. If you have any of this size, I would swap out 2 of the #3 Camalots for the #3.5 size.

The new rap line was awesome! Again, much appreciation to you guys for fixing up this setup, it was a major community service. Replacement of the outdated summit whiskey stash was also appreciated.

Comments: Nice job resurrecting this old area Roy and party! We had a great time here yesterday. It makes an ideal "pit stop" for climbers traveling between Flagstaff and Zion. It was a perfect option to get out and tag a few mellow summits en route back home after a big day in Zion. The climbs are worthwhile (if accustomed to obscure desert choss), a flat 15 minute hike from the car, and only a few minutes between the towers. The anchors were all bomber bolts, and the webbing was still good (2/16). About... more >>

Comments: A fun jaunt on a nice little tower close to the road. The rock is decent, and we trundled a handful of the more obvious loose blocks off of it to help clean it up some. There are still things to be wary of, but it's mostly choss-free. Summit register is soaked unfortunately.

Comments: I agree with Kevin. The above description of the 3rd pitch reads like an entirely different experience than what we encountered up there. I would describe that pitch as 90% creaky choss, with a band of the worst brown sugar "rock" I've seen in Sedona. Between the two of us, we trundled probably 40 lbs of blocks out of the crack after the initial traverse, and pulled or scuffed off many small bits and pieces throughout. The final runout above the pin was indeed on slightly better rock, but I cert... more >>

Comments: The most burly wide climbing is indeed off the deck in the flared v-slot. I placed the #6 here, mostly just to unburden myself. I don't really think it's necessary, as it looked like smaller gear may work here too, and the slot is pretty secure. We linked pitch 1 and 2, which worked fine as long as everything is slung long and not much gear is placed in the chimney of pitch 2. It's 35m to the ground from the anchors on pitch 2. The 3rd pitch is all bolts, no gear needed. I think the route ... more >>

Comments: An awesome, varied line that with some very unique sections. A .3 and .4 Camalot (or two .4s) are the key pieces at the top of pitch one, and also handy on pitch 4. A single rack to #2 C4 with one extra .75, 2 #3s, one new #4, one old #4 (or equivalent), and 1 #5 seemed sufficient. There is only 1 bolt on the crux OW. I didn't think a #6 was necessary. A dozen or more draws are handy, as the last pitch is long. You can do two raps with a single 70m to the last... more >>
