about coming across formations like this in AZ.

It hasn't happened yet.

Climbed the north ridge of this with my 15 year old son a few years back. Another party saw me leading it and sent a rope up with my son. Turns out that the other guys had really wanted to climb it but didn't have the guts to lead it! Neat route, but p1 is a bit scary, especially if it's windy.

At least you provided them a way to get up to the top and experience the tower. It's a great route - I try to jump on it whenever I get a chance to climb down there.

It really IS a great route, isn't it? The climbing is fun, the summit is airy, and it's cool to be able to set your hands on the E and W faces at the same time!

I was inspired so much by the John Gillespie Magee quote that you've posted that I've done the same (copyright noted to Steve Marr). Thanks for the post.

Thanks. I stole that from my brother in law who drives F16s for the Air Force.
