Led, with Ivana. Fun little climb & cool formation! Always an interesting experience, climbing at the Garden, with all the gawkers. Bring some small to medium cams. A #3 Camalot fits perfectly into the little pod at the crux, right before the first eyelet.
climbed the best tower in the garden of the gods with brian. airy, exposed route was super cool and scary simultaneously. a great way to start the day!
The crux is to the first bolt, but the easy climbing next has the ridiculous exposure.very cool fin though those pitons in soft rock are a little scary if that was your limit.
Climbed via North Ridge Route and rappelled down (first rappel, too!).
6/10/09 - Unfortunatly we had to bail after the first pitch due to an electrical storm. I shot up the pitch to clean the gear and we bailed from a big eyebolt. I WILL be back.
6/22/09 - Returned in better weather and made it to the top! Very unique climb.
Fun little climb on the way down to shelf road. Felt real easy for 5.7, but great exposure, pretty damn dramatic route
Did this quickly on the way down to Shelf. Fun little climb, too bad it's not longer! Also had flocks of tourists gawking at us, which was pretty funny.
It was a little odd to climb with a crowd of walkers and tourists taking my picture, but I'm glad I could be of service providing the day's entertainment. Great route with pretty dramatic exposure. Beautiful weather day!
