Routes on the Minas Morgul tower, l to r: Bladdimi...

Description 

When David and I began exploring the Totem-Proto area for new development we were enchanted by the potential for scaling new towers here. Our first view was by traversing across a face just south of Proto Pipe, above the ancient and wonderful old juniper that remains alive despite having fallen into a gully (Please don't damage this tree!!). Better access is described below.

Getting There 

From the start of "Overcoming Inertia" on the northeast buttress of Proto Pipe, skirt the buttress to the south and then turn uphill into this "hidden" area of towers and crags.

Climbing Season

For the Lower Devil's Canyon area.

Weather station 0.6 miles from here
