Climb a moderate right facing corner with a crack 30ft or so to a ledge. Move left and fire 70ft of steep splitter. Gear is better than it looks. Lots of hand jams and finger locks. The rock is pretty good but there is certainly loose stuff that makes this lead a bit more exciting. Use caution when moving off the ledge.

This thing didn't show any signs of previous accent. However, as I have explored this area I have found traces of activity that I can't find any info on. As with many areas around AZ perhaps someone scrambled up this thing years ago. If that is the case please let me know.


This is a 100ft spire looking formation that sits atop the buttresses on the Eastside of the Elysian area. You can climb up to this one via other routes or scramble up a 3rd class gully. Makes for a great bonus pitch.


Doubles in BD's from .3 to 2. One #3. A few Smaller tcu's and or BD C3's could be useful. Nuts can work in places. 4-5 runners. 60 meter rope.
