|Comments: I climbed this many times in either 02 or 03. It was a fantastic |
year for it. It had a rope on it for several weeks straight. It was
even led a few times until the column broke near the top and tilted
against the rock. In great years you also have a fantastic curtain
you can traverse to from about 3/4 of the way up.
By the way, stop by the old Starved Rock outfitters store and Tom
or Mark can give you a full history of the formation. It was climbed
many many years before the 80's.
