Comments: Here are a few tips for the easiest way to get up both towers, starting with the South tower route. Hike around the west side of the towers leaving your packs at a large boulder to the west of the notch between the towers, on your way to the slabs/drainage, up and to the right. For the 1st "pitch" getting up to the ridge, stay to the right and you are able to friction up a 30 foot slab without roping up, then head back to the left to find the 1st decent looking crack leading up. Rope up here for... more >>

Comments: This is a great, straight forward, clean aid route (for most of us anyway). It's located about a mile down on the right from 191, at the end of the rock band, just before the alcove where "Class Act" is located. The belay's are in great shape, but the top of the 1st pitch is small and sloping. My calves were burning for the rest of my trip from standing in the aiders.

Comments: I put in the anchor in the late 90's, someone had climbed it before and had rapped off a single piece called a "teton". It's a really cool unique climb, although I don't remember it being as hard as 5.10. I always wondered who did the 1st???

Comments: Cool route, while looking up at that headwall pitch it begs to be climbed. The 3rd pitch is awesome. As far as gear. we placed 1 #5 but could have gotten through without it, we also didn't need the leeper cam hook. Many yellow metolious, .5, .75, and #1 camalots are helpful for the headwall pitch. The rock is a little scary even in the cracks, put the placements deep because if they are placed too close to the edge they will blow out. We had trouble pulling the ropes from the top, it... more >>

Comments: The webbing on the rap was is bad shape. We extended it to reach over the edge. We were able to get all the way to the ground with one double rope rap, and had no problem pulling them. Not the most "classic" of routes, but a fun diversion.

Comments: Besides the offsets for the first half of the third pitch, 3 of each metolius #0-#2 are nice for the upper half of pitch 3. We also appreciated a blue tri-cam for a hole next to the last bolt on pitch 1. And a #5 camalot between the roof and the anchors on pitch 4. These pieces aren't mandatory but made things easier. Great climb, pitch 3 was by far my "pitch of the year". I wonder what "don't stand on the piton guy" would have thought about my shoulder stand to start pitch 3?

Comments: If this ends at/below a rotten rock choked dihedral, then it's called Critical Mass. Thinking it was the last route that could be sneaked in to the area. Of course we were wrong. F.A. Mike Baker, Andy Roberts, and Wilson Goodrich.

Comments: Brad,
Do you want to set up the Dripping Springs area, since it is fresh in your mind. Or would you like me to do it?

Comments: Hey Crusher,
That make sense to me. If you change Lockhart Basin to "Road" that would cover where these towers are. We would just need to have Amazon and Solstice Towers taken out of road side hoodoos and into the Lockhart Basin Road area. You should check out these towers. The approach's are pretty brutal but they are cool routes to really neat summits. The way Sam and Brad accessed Amazon Tower from the Anticline Overlook road is a bit of a drive but a really short hike to the rim behind the t... more >>

Comments: Yea, at the time I didn't know how to set up a new area. Is there any way this can be fixed?

Comments: This route is only about 100' right of The Large "S" shaped chimney "The Constrictor". This route has the potential to be taken to the top. I think you need 2 ropes for the rappel.

Comments: Yea, afternoon sun. I think it faces Northwest. I will keep adding some routes to this. I'm hoping Dave Mealey posts some of the climbs that I was not involved with.

Comments: Hey Dave,
I hiked up to the base of this around 11 years ago. I remember the super thin splitter running up the wall. I could tell the rock was questionable but I could see how you were tempted to climb it.
The day I saw it I was on a hike with Liz to propose to her.

Comments: This route was climbed in Feb of 99' which was a cold time to be on this wall. We left a registry on top with a coupon for a free large pizza from Pasta Jay's (which I was managing at the time). One Saturday night later that year, these two dirty climbers from Durango poked their heads into the kitchen to cash in on the free pizza.

Comments: I climbed this route a long time ago but I remember being able to avoid the crux on the 2nd pitch to keep the route at 5.9. I've got fuzzy memories, but I think you move right at the 2nd bolt? I remember it as a fun climb, but I usually recall every route as a grade easier and never as scary as it really is. Have fun.
