I've been looking at Family Plot on the Tombstone formation in the lost world butte area nw of moab and am wondering if this would be a good rope solo project for me. Is there enough to build an anchor at the bottom of pitch one? Seems pretty straight up...
I've done several single pitch clean aid routes and would like to try a multi pitch desert route before I commit to a solo wall in the future. Any advice or suggestions of other routes to try as well? Thanks.

The Entrada there is really, really soft. I'm not a huge fan of rope soloing remote very soft rock - you'd be in a bad way if anything went wrong.

I'd recommend Maverick on the Hindu, Colorado NW Ridge on the Kingfisher, or Zenyatta Entrada in Arches. I've always thought one of the routes on the Kane Creek Tombstones would be good but never gotten around to it yet.
