Three separate tiers of ruins are visible from the tower.  Incredible!

After rapping down the south face from the saddle, we scrambled up the left hand talus line back to the rim.  No need to jug out.

From the base of the tower at the saddle, it is possible to rap straight down to the ground off of two bolts. Two 70s barely reach.  There are also two drilled angles about 55 meters down if you have shorter ropes.  From here, traverse over to a line of talus that runs all the way to the rim.

We fixed a single 70 and rapped off of the North side of the ridge that leads out to the towers.  From here Dreamspeaker is in view.  With a little zig zagging, we were able to traverse to the saddle.

Comments: We climbed the south face on 8/22/14 and the route did not come into the sun until after 12:30. We approached from the parking area by traversing the rim to the ridge that extends out towards the towers. From the North side of the ridge, fix a single 70(or 60?) to get down to a point where you can scramble down and traverse over to the saddle.
Two 60s will get you back to the saddle from the summit of the tower. From the saddle, rap straight down from bolts on the base of the tower. Two 7... more >>

Comments: This map is excellent! One thing I noticed is that the Kachina Towers (16) are labeled in the incorrect location. The place marker is in the mouth of Dubinky Wash which is roughly 2 miles west of the actual towers. Thanks for sharing!

Comments: On P1, our rope got stuck to the point that the second had to jug the fixed/stuck line. It appears that the drag could be reduced or eliminated by placing a directional cam in the horizontal break at the lip of the roof after pulling the roof. This would pull the rope out away from the roof itself.

Comments: I'm sure its been done by now, but Jim Madore and I freed the route back in late April. We broke up pitch two by belaying in the base of the chimney. We interpreted "a few larger cams" as two #4s, a 5, and a 6. This felt a little light since the entirety of pitch two is wide. We recommend a few more. The bolt out on the lip was nice.

Comments: I was wondering if anyone knows how the snow is melting off. I am hoping to be up there the last week of June.

Comments: The crack is wider now. The pillar is slowly falling away and climbers will notice that their grabers fit into the crack way more than they used to.
