OW below arête on left side of pillar.


This area is characterized by a huge, detached pillar which contains a nice chimney/blunt arête along with short faces. There's natural pro for a TR, but anchor/lead bolts would be nice.

Getting There 

Keep contouring northward on the indistinct trail. Once under the chimney/arête, access to the slot is gained by a short boulder problem. Here one could solo/chimney out to the top of the pillar, as these are only TRs so far. Otherwise, keep hiking north to ledges & rim.

Climbing Season

For the Durango area.
