BETA PHOTO: The route.


This route is on the Otis Flower Tower.

Start up a draw on the left side of the south face and traverse out right on ledges to gain the starting dihedral. 4 pitches pretty much straight up, following broken dihedrals, with face mixed in.

This turned out to be a nice find, and I gave it 3stars for that formation.... We did this route in the summer of '09 after Jonny & Micah passed, and named it for them, fallen hero.

It is a bit runout on the face sections, the rock quality is good, and the dihedrals are fun. Andy figured 5.11, I figured 10+, so we need another party to tell us what they figure the grade is....


Otis Flower Tower, Andrews Glacier area, Rocky Mountain National Park.


Standard rack, and extra #4 Camalots for the 1st pitch dihedral.
