Comments: You can now rap from the top of pitch 3 with one rope, rappelling down Operation Condor. There are chains equipped for this to be a standard single rope rap route.

Comments: Climbed the first 4 pitches. Stellar!

We then bailed due to sun. As of the end of July, it gets shade till 1, then full sun.

Free rack can be a bit lighter than the aid rack. We took a triple set, but could have gotten away with a double set, although extra .75 and 1 camalots for sure, and maybe an extra .5?

Good rock, easy approach, fun moves.

Comments: Be careful on the last pitch. That tree is looking worse and worse, and is pretty shaky. I'd crawl under the tree branch if possible, especially if your second is going to jug.

Comments: What a line! Matty VB and I climbed it on 12/13/12. We got away with doubles from blue metolius to BD 3, with one BD 4 and a purple metolius with extra finger sizes (yellow metolius to red metolius). We were able to link p1/2 (extend under roof), p4/5 (with some simuling and a stance belay), p 8/9, an p13/14 (plan for rope drag).

Approach: chinle trail to huber wash, walk up the wash until it starts getting really blocky and steep. Look for cairns on the right, follow them up the steep dirt/san... more >>
