Clean and continuous friction climbing to the summit of an isolated sandstone peak. This route is comparable to Checkerboard Mesa or the popular Aries Butte while being slightly longer(1000ft) and perhaps lower angle with even more continuous crack systems. 5.7 | Grade III/IV. 9 pitches of mulipitch climberWhile not extremely physical, the low angle of this route is not considered physical climbing unique and it can take some time to adjust to the nuances of the white rock. Spring and Fall are the best times of year for an ascent. The descent involves a 120ft rappel and some 3rd class downclimbing of the backside of the formation.
Start time is finalized at time of reservation. Approximate start times for planning 7AM -9AM depending on season.
