BETA PHOTO: Topping out


one of, if not the longest,tallest route in the amphitheater.This route is a great warmup and a must do if your in the area.also a great way to reach the top tier.


Located on the bottom tier.this is one of the only south facing walls in the amphitheater, and one of the first you encounter after coming up out of the wash.


5 bolts

Went up there today to find bees in full fury at the base of the climb. Caution!

Yes, five bolts... is there a problem with that? When I put the route up in the first place, it seemed like more than enough.

Too bold, or too many?

A great line, but don't miss the other faces of this tower: Angelicus (considered by some folks to be one of the best 5.9s in the canyon) and Madame Guillotine, the heady 5.10 on the north face.
