Does anyone have some info or background on the northwest facing route on Cleopatra's Chair? This is not the regular 5.6 A0 route on the southeast side that faces the parking area.

The Bjornstad guide for the area (p218) seems to have a jumbled up description of the SE and NW routes. My partner and I climbed the NW route this weekend, and its no 5.6. Felt more like 5.9 with iffy gear below your feet. My partner (Craig Hughes) actually climbed the route several years before with his wife.

FYI Cleopatra's Chair is worth the effort, as its not just hyperbole that it has the best view in Utah.

Any background on this route would be appreciated.

First ascent. The Sword of Damocles... a real beauty. P. Ross on the summit. Palisade and I-70 below.

Yes thought the bit out of the chimney was a bit more than 5.6 /...5.8 Good route
