This is the ever-widening offwidth dihedral to the left of the Zig-Zag route.


Bring gear 3-6 inches.

This is actually an existing route (Mr. Sheley, 10c, 150 ft). The pitch ends at the top of the pillar. As with many routes at Escalante, the climbing doesn't end when it gets wide. If bolts have sprouted 60 feet up, they probably won't last very long.

Slim, I was just out there this past weekend and noticed the new anchors. I was surprised about their appearance. I figured that it went to the top and wondered why they were there. I am glad that you identified the history of the pitch. I have not climbed it yet but will take it to the top next time to enjoy it all. By the way, if you head out, keep an eye for the HUGE rockfall to around the corner to the right. The entire column fell over, it is insane!!!

Just curious - Why is the name Catholic Girls still attached to this route?

It's only aka that name by whoever retro bolted an anchor halfway up an existing climb that already had an anchor at the top that can be seen from the ground.
