Great way to spend half a day  Sucess!

Nice mellow climb after tackling Family Butte the day before. Nailed the approach since we'd already attempted the peak once before and bailed at the technical part due to wet rock. The climbing was easier than expected with reasonable protection. I led P1 & Dom led P2. We got one of our ropes stuck on the rappel and sacrificed it rather than repeating the entire climb to retrieve it :(

open window  Sucess!

climbed with mike, what an adventure! over shot the proper way through the cliffs and ended up taking the 5.4 nightmare to gain the plateau. heinous approach to say the least! the route itself was very nice, and not runout when you need the pro. the sandy sloping holds at the crux provided some spice, and internal questions about the 5.7 rating. great climb! excellent summit, what a view!

North Rib  Sucess!

Climbed with Jamie, pretty cool route and not as bad as I was expecting considering my track record on desert sandstone has not been good. The approach is pretty rough, and we missed the early ascent through the lower cliffs which put us on edge for the upper pitches as our route through the cliffs was loose and stiff. The upper pitches, however, were better quality than expected and actually quite enjoyable! Climbed nearby Pinnacle BM the following day for a delightful scramble.

Great day!  Sucess!

A long and memorable day! The crux is really getting to the roping up area. Climbed with my brothers on a great fall day.
