Good  Sucess!

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.

Calcite Everywhere!  Sucess!

We were the first ones on the route! Calcite chimneys are a blast..ehh not really. Fun climb though! Brought a #6 and thought it came in handy more then once

Ultraclassic?   Sucess!

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.
Lead 2 pitches.
I enjoy the North Chimney more...

My First Trad Climb & Tower  Sucess!

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).

nice day  Sucess!

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

first tower  Sucess!

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.

perfect day Jun/05  Sucess!

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