With Kiff in 2.5 pitches. 1st pitch is a great aid pitch and summit pitch a fun free climb at .10+/11-
We climbed the Maverick in 3 pitches, linking pitches 2 & 3. Really unique rappel from the top to the sidewalk.
Fun stuff, last pitch is better to bust free moves at the start to a good placement to avoid scary aid fall potential, about mid 10 to the good placement.
Following Shirley's heel injury on Dark Angel, we decided to spend the rest of our Moab stay doing aid climbs (no rock shoes for her). After getting snowed off from base of NE Ridge on Kingfisher the day before, wanted to go for something with more sun exposure. This is a great line on a mid-sized (but dramatically shaped) tower. Fun climbing - most of it is aid (all aid is clean here!) - with good belay anchors and a pointy summit with great views of The Fishers. Nice 1/2 day outing (faster for experienced aid parties).
