I enjoyed this climb and the setting. I wouldn't call it an ultra classic tho. I was glad to have the #5 several times. I layed back the crux, seemed way easier than offwidthing. Alot of polished rock.Fun last pitch variation to the left. Def 9+ probly a good idea to lead a few .10's before hitting this one up.

First experience with super-slick calcite. Very fun route. Climbed North Chimney afterwards, which may be a little better.

I have to admit that I did not enjoy this climb that much. Calcite made it slippery and the 3rd pitch off width was awkward. Nice summit.

Led by my buddy Brandon Eyre. Great day on in Castle Valley. Great climb with plenty of adventure. We forgot our headlamps and had to descend in the dark with no moon. The descent was more dangerous than the route. I have returned and led the route twice (2002 & 2003).

good climb, but not a classic. Makes you realize desert tower grading is a little sandbagged in comparison to newer climbs.

Unbelievably June 1 was perfect to climb this route in 2008. On a tower a day rampage with Joe. Not near the route as Search of Suds on Washer Woman, but fun route just the same and of course one of the 50 NA classics. Can be quite pleasant in June if you get an early start. We were shaded and cool for the whole route, but did move fast. The top of the third pitch was quite stout off width, can't protect and the bolts are so-so. Can't lie back because the edge has gotten way too smooth (Radek, how did you do that?). Turn and go right side in and look for an edge you can't see with your right hand and use some features on the left wall to reach a good hold and some pro op. Goes pretty fast and furious, we had it all to ourselves on a Sunday while folks were lined up on the North Chimney!

Climbed with Mark on a nice day. I liked the whole route and was pleased to find less groveling than I expected in the OW pitch. As we were rapping down, Timmy O'Neil and five friends were climbing up, hauling a pony keg.

We climbed the day before a lot of rain & cold temps hit, a perfect day in June when you would normally be sweltering!
