A fun few moves on each pitch. Second pitch was way easier than I expected, perhaps some are intimidated by the awkward positioning but I found all the moves easily, thought it to be 5.7 at best. The final pitch was a surprise to me though. I am a 5.8 leader accustomed to roofs and this thing was tough! the pitons provided great protection for the crux move but the lack of feet along with the rock being cold and sandy combined with an almost barndoor feel under the roof provided a good challenge. It was pumpy and I regret that it was my first lead to have to pull on the gear!

Went up again on a nice spring day with my wife. Chilly in the morning shade but it shaped up to be a nice day.

Thought the crux was the offdith, chimney third pitch. Top pitch was not bad at all. Get on it!

excellent, fun filled day on a great route with a fantastic group! the cruxes, especially the 5.8 stretch through the buttcracks weren't as difficult as i thought they'd be. 5.9 overhang to gain the summit was a real challenge, and i needed to hang for a moment before pulling through on my second attempt.

great desert tower....in colorado!

Otto's route with Jamie, Aaron and Sean. Couple of tough spots, especially the cap rock crux which got a bit pumpy trying to pull the roof with slick feet. Overall a very fun route and great weather, warm day but route stays mostly comfortably in the shade.

Good climb. A bit scary on the last pitch in 40mph winds.

This was my first desert tower climb so no matter how manufactured the holds were, it was still fun. I found the dihedral on P3 pretty attention getting since the biggest piece we had was #3:) the rest was just mellow fun climbing all the way to the top where one is rewarded with awesome views...
