climbed with mike, what an adventure! over shot the proper way through the cliffs and ended up taking the 5.4 nightmare to gain the plateau. heinous approach to say the least! the route itself was very nice, and not runout when you need the pro. the sandy sloping holds at the crux provided some spice, and internal questions about the 5.7 rating. great climb! excellent summit, what a view!
Climbed with Jamie, pretty cool route and not as bad as I was expecting considering my track record on desert sandstone has not been good. The approach is pretty rough, and we missed the early ascent through the lower cliffs which put us on edge for the upper pitches as our route through the cliffs was loose and stiff. The upper pitches, however, were better quality than expected and actually quite enjoyable! Climbed nearby Pinnacle BM the following day for a delightful scramble.
Long approach. We did the climbing in 2 pitches. One short pitch to a notch along the ridge, and a long pitch up cracks and a gully to the scrambling ledge. The top has some of the best views in the desert.
