A fun, kinda cool tower in the Ghost Ranch area. The key to this tower is hoopsticking, a new type of climbing described in Postcards from the Trailer Park, by Cameron M. Burns.

Getting There 

Wander through the entire Ghost Ranch campus to its NW side and you'll find a number of trails leading to various locations. One trail heads into Box Canyon, NW of Ghost Ranch. Follow this trail about half a mile to the point where it crosses a stream. King Rudi will be right above you to the north.

Hike up to the left side of King Rudi. Climb an obvious crack that delineates the left side of the tower. After 30 feet, move right and continue up blocks, cracks, and ledges to the notch between the tower and the wall behind. This first 120 feet or so is best done as 2 pitches because of rope drag. P3 climbs a bolt ladder, then stops shy of the summit. We used a long cheater stick to drape a sling over the summit. There are rap anchors on top. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in New Mexico
