Super fun route! Long pitches. Too hot for July :)
I wish to go back and climb more routes. Frank Sanders is a great guide.
Super fun climb, all good hands (mostly left hand) but the first little blocky part of the first pitch. Bring a #4 BD Cam for the finish.
First time crack climbing, I got to the top, but not easily :) Meeting Frank Sanders made it all worth it...
The main reason for our visit to Devils Tower was to visit with Frank Sanders. One of the most generous souls I have ever met in the climbing industry and a must person to meet if you get the chance. With dark clouds looming above, we decided to squeeze in this route before continuing our two week road trip back home. A 70m rope will get you to the top of the route with minimal simul climbing. Triple 2's and 1's are helpful if you are going to combine the pitches like that. There is a hanging rap station out right to hit first, before rapping back to the mid station if using a 70m. Good sustained climbing. With Stacy.
this was a tough lead for a 5.8, very long and sustained. I didn't bring enough cams so I had to run out the last 30ft, but it gets easier there.
This was a tough 5.8! You have to put your Left arm and leg into the crack and use the face to the right as the crack is a dihedral. It was sustained and tough the whole way.
