Comments: The floods/rock slides of last week changed the base of the falls incredibly. It raised the ground level several feet and washed out boulder/trees at the top. Amazing!

Comments: All bolt hangers are now smashed, and the first bolt is less than waist high. The rock slide/floods last week completely changed/destroyed this route.

Comments: Tristan:
I think you used my route description. ( ajroadtrips.com/go/t/utah/ceda... ) You seem to be doing a lot of the trips from my site these days.

It was traditionally rated 5.5 in the Desert Rock guidebook I have. Could definitely be soloed, but the rock is poor. A few pieces seem prudent for moderate leaders. I know of at least 2 groups that went to the base without gear, and backed off.

Comments: After the roof, there is also a bolted line up the arete on the left. Anyone know what's it's called? Felt about 5.7 as well.

Comments: We did this route September 17-2007. Wild exposure on the last pitch. If you have a 70M rope, you can rap the route with that instead of taking 2-60M's. 1 set of cams, 1 set of nuts, and some trad draws is the rack we used. My more detailed trip report is here

Comments: A couple of rivet hangers, or wire nuts are useful. 2 or 3 of the bolts were missing hangers.

Comments: Definitely an interesting climb. Disappointedly, we could not find a summit register. It would be interesting to see how often the route is climbed.

For gear, I placed a #2 Robot Cam in the first pitch before the traverse out of the hand crack, and used a couple of medium cams to setup a belay. That was it for the route. The slot pitch is easy and secure, and the crux section up high doesn't have any placements.

I avoided the shoulder stand crux move with a wide stem, and tricky balance... more >>

Comments: When I did this, I placed a #4 Camalot at the top of the crack, a couple of TCU's in a horizontal crack below the drilled piton, then a quickdraw for the piton.

Fun tower. Great setting.
