Comments: Andrew, we hiked in from lower wedge road, north of the canyon. We didn't leave the car until after 2pm and had no idea where we were going, so we unfortunately only had time to climb the first pitch- really awesome pitch, and no gimme either.

Comments: Freed the first pitch with Neils Tietze- high quality crack climbing. Probably 12+ ish if the last 20' of sugary green camalots get cleaned up (imagine placing cams in graham crackers) As it is, probably more like 13-. Gear...

2 x .4 camalots
11x .5 camalots
10x .75 camalots
1x 1 camalot

We hiked down from the rim to get to the tower, instead of taking the trail up the river. Fun, but not reccomended. Cheers to the FA'ers for putting this gem on the map. m

Comments: I believe I did the FFA on this one (nov 2010). The bolt twists out from people hanging on the route I would guess. Glue-ins would work well for this pitch. Press out the mantle at the end, or no send!!

Comments: After a few days of work this spring, I was able to send the second pitch of this line. The first pitch was 30m long. The second pitch is 40m and felt like hard 5.13. For the second pitch, i used 4 red camalots, 7 green, 2purple, 2grey, 1 blue. This is a truly awesome pitch.

Comments: Dear Mountainproject,

I am saddened that you censored Eric's playful simile from his route description. I believe that his description was well within the Mountainproject guidelines for appropriate language and attitude. While I understand the site trying to avoid PG-13 content, the people of this country have fought too hard to gain the right to freedom of speech for this sort of censorship to happen. What are we as Americans if we are not free? What do we have left when our freedom is taken ... more >>

Comments: Devin,

I'm not sure what you're trying to accomplish with your interesting writing style, but it certainly made for a cruxy read! That aside, in the course of trying this route I didn't once leave gear in overnight.

Also, I appreciate your concern about sensitive areas. I put a lot of thought into wether or not to try this route, and ultimately decided that it was perfectly acceptable. First of all, the closest petroglyph to the base of this climb is about 40 feet away. On top of that, the r... more >>

Comments: I believe the solo speed record for the pioneer route is currently 3m30sec. Time starts at the beginning of the fourth class, ends at the summit. GET IT!
