Comments: Nice work Clay, always thought that one should be a decent little free option. You should go back and scrub it up! And maybe one day I'll get back up there and clean up some of these other little choss heaps.

Comments: Awesome work up here guys, stoked to check out some of these more recent additions when I'm back up that way!

Comments: These routes were bouldered years ago, but no exact FA info has been preserved. They will almost certainly see more traffic now that they have some hardware, but they do have good landings for those who prefer pads to draws. Sorry Taylor, but I have to call out BS on the 35' heights listed too, these are shorter than my micro-routes up the hill, which are probably ~20'.

Comments: Thanks for the props Josh, and glad you had a great time up here!

If you want a copy prior to a trip up here, and are the type that likes to go straight to the source, buy a copy from me! I have them posted on Amazon, and am also happy to mail directly if you just PM me here on the Proj.

Comments: I believe that I did the FA of this thing back in 2001 or so. I will have to try and find one of the surviving copies of my old guidebook I did for the area to verify. If I do so, I will update info. I know we climbed those cracks, and I bolted a couple short, maybe contrived little faces routes there.

We put up a number of little routes around the base of Goliath and throughout the area. This was when I was in high school, and I'm sure many of these lines are somewhat silly and not the mo... more >>

Comments: Thanks Eli for posting this up, it's about time it was on the internet. I remember this was a decent route up a great little desert tower transplanted to Wyoming, complete with nearby prickly pear and petroglyphs for authentic desert ambiance. I'm sure it has cleaned up a good bit in the 15 years since its establishment. I've actually bumped into a few folks over the years who have climbed it, which I always am stoked to hear. Glad the bolts seem in good condition still.

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: 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.
