BETA PHOTO: Aeolian Hollow topo

Description 

Aeolian Hollow climbs a fun chimney-type feature through a layer of incredibly cross-bedded sandstone to a delightful perch above Boynton Canyon.

Start at the saddle, working your way up the crack system on ledgy mudstone. Jam through a nice hand crack and huddle into the depths of the hollow. Climb up and out through a featured offwidth roof (crux; well protected). Continue up a low-angle groove tube to a two-bolt anchor on the left pillar.

Rappel 90' from chains.

Location 

Obvious deep crack splitting the buttress opposite Sinagua Spire.

Protection 

Gear to 2" for the lower half. The crux roof protects with 4-5" gear - having two or three cams in this range would be ideal. Above that, the easy groove takes a 6" piece.
