Tim Shea on the east face of O'Neil Butte


Beautiful 1 pitch, great potection up the obvious open book on the East Face. The rock is soft so beware.


Start down the Kiabab Trail on the S rim and descend to level even with O'Neil Butte. Head cross country to the base of the east face


Eats pro, great crack to the top. up to 3.5'

If you are at the Grand Canyon and don't mind some Hiking you will love this. Hike down the Kibab Trail until you are even with the tower and head overland. The Tower is Supai sandstone so it's pretty soft. But for GC this is a an awesome climb. Good pro with cams to 3', we had 2 ropes for the rap but I think a 70 would work.
