Desert dessert


This is the free standing pillar with a striking green streaked face and clean double arete profile.

An area classic that should not be missed.

Start on the left side of the pillar climbing the left-hand arete, move right onto the face for a bit then out to the right-hand arete for a while then back left again below the anchor. Airy, technical, and exciting!

Great climb, but it seemed like pretty much every bolt was a spinner. Next time I'll bring a wrench.

Bear hug the wall on tiny feet through the lower crux. Great fun!

Fun moves, and sequences let you zig-zag your way up the column. Word of advice: don't climb this route when it's very windy since you may get knocked off balance :)
