Comments: As previously stated, a piton is missing on the 3rd pitch bolt ladder, making a hook move mandatory (unless you feel like making hard free moves).

Pitch 4, never made a mandatory free move as stated in S.T.

For me, pitch 5 was the crux; I remember making at least three body weight placements in a row. I used peenuts and brass rp's on this pitch.

Pitch 6 was tricky, but my blue totem got me through the crux easily.

Pitch 8 had a bad blown out placement (could use a bolt), I bypass... more >>

Comments: Jimmy Durante is the only route with fixed anchors and pitons; put up who-knows when.. Leopard's tail is gear only, sharing the first pitch with Jimmy Durante.. not the same restrictions.

Comments: This climb was excellent. However, this tower has many loose blocks EVERYWHERE. The route sketch/diagram that is provided was very useful, however, I had read on supertopo and on mountain project that this climb was on either the Northwest or West face... It turns out, the whole climb is on a SW aspect. The approach took 1.5 hours and was a fairly easy scramble to the base (easy to find, just read beta). Crux is most certainly at the bottom of the 3rd pitch, off of the belay station. One of the... more >>

Comments: Did this route today. I only brought a 60 m rope and it worked just fine, but just bearly. I also top-roped the climb and it still worked... So disregard Eric's comment.

Comments: Dec 21 I climbed this route. This was my first desert tower attempt. I don't see how the ratings work on this thing. ha. 1st pitch was a tight squeez. 2nd pitch don't go in the offwidth!!! Go right and you'll find the way with smaller placements instead of #5's! Pitch three... I got to the top bolt and could not fit in the crack. so like everyone says you have to face climb. well Im a face climber and that was f****** crazy run out s***. Not no 5.9! Therefore didn't finish. lowered off bol... more >>

Comments: Fun climb. Easy climbing.... but on 2nd pitch there is a bolt run out about 25 feet on 5.7, just be careful. you don't want a 50 ft whipper.

Comments: Awesome route. Easy climbing first pitch. 1st roof I would rate a 10c, but second roof looks like a 10d or possible 11a.

Comments: Nice place to climb, it has a very good variety. Too bad it's closed more than open and he charges enough to climb. What a joke. too bad
