Currently have zero historical information but I climbed this formation in December 2016 and can relate what I found.

This is the prominent summit (if this were the Grand Canyon would probably be called a temple) 1 km southeast of the lower gondola station. It is visible from the canyon rim at Divisadero, the adventure park, and the hotels to the south.

Getting There 

Get to the lower gondola station, either by hiking down to it or riding down. From here there is a trail that goes underneath the gondola cables and then runs south below the mesa where the gondola station is situated. Follow this path along the ridgeline, passing a few smaller pinnacles, until you're below the formation. The trail circles the formation.

Climbing Season

For the Northern Mexico area.

Weather station 11.1 miles from here

Starts with the steepest part, even a slight overhang, on sort of shitty rock, then claw your way up unprotectable dirt to a small ledge. Continue up face past nice hand crack and pull onto a small ledge with 2 bolt anchor (equipped for rappel, but will likely kink your ropes because it's just one carabine...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
