Rusted Rapture 5.10 6b 20 VII- 19 E2 5b  AZ : Northern Arizona : ... : East End Wall
Rusted Rapture is a stunning pitch. From start to finish this varied line serves up everything from bouldery face climbing to splitter cracks, as well as, the classic roof section. Its one of the better basalt pitches around at the grade. Rap down to suspended boulder at 90', fixed belay. The first 15' of climbing off the belay is fantastic and bouldery, as you follow an arching seem with just enough holds to keep it in the V0 range.

Frankly, after two decades of new routing, I have never had a section of cliff give me the heebee geebies like this thing. My 2 cents, take it or leave it. Elsewhere in the Volunteer section a route is described climbing up this feature...

Thanks for reporting this. I had mentioned such a route in a discussion on the main page that climbs up the left side of the column if you cross over to it after finishing the hand crack on Experimental Forrest. We had come into it higher so never saw or even considered how precariously balanced that pillar is. I'll delete my mentioning of such a route and let your warning stand alone.
