Agathla, not Ship Rock

Hi Liba,
This is actually a photo of Agathla (also known as El Capitan), some 80 miles to the west of Ship Rock, just south of Monument Valley, and just north of Kayenta, AZ. Some call it Ship Rock's, uglier little brother. The route up this one is very devious, loose, and scary. Does not get climbed anywhere near as often as Ship Rock.

Re: Agathla, not Ship Rock

This picture is ship rock. Photo taken from the south. You can actually see the start of the route.
Agathla is by Kayenta.

Liba, are you sure it's not Aglatha?

It sure looks like Agathla to me too.

Compare with photos:

Agathla

Great photo either way.

Re: Agathla, not Ship Rock

Wait there is two of them???? Well I guess what I thought was Shiprock was actually Agathla when I was by Kayenta!

Re: Agathla, not Ship Rock

Sorry for a late response (just got back from a trip). yes, those photos look like Agathla. I took it a long time ago and thought that I shot the photo south of Shiprock town while driving towards Gallup… will leave it as ? now and will try to clarify in the future
