Description 

Two climbs exist on this tower, one nice lead, Simply Replaced, and a top-rope problem, Green Snake, leads to the same anchor. The rock is of high quality and the movement on the routes is fun. We just wished that the climbs were much longer!

Descend routes by rappelling from the anchors on top of the tower.


Getting There 

As there are no trails in this area aside from the main trail into the canyon, there are multiple ways to get to this formation by navigating through the brush, rock, cholla, cactus, and other exciting skin welting natives. We bushwhacked up and left (northeast) from Out of Darkness Slabs. There was evidence that others have done this, however, no distinct trails. Another option we saw may be to connect the formations, climbing from the top of Out of Darkness Slabs, followed by some roped bushwhacking, and up another short slab. A mini-multipitch adventure. Not sure which way would be easiest, considering all the obstacles that exist either way you go.

An old bolt on Simply Replaced. This would not inspire confidence! We were happy to clip the shiny new ones nearby.

This is a very nice climb, but is short. You finish wishing that is was a full 160 feet of similar face climbing. Original route line lost to history (Someone out there probably knows the FA party). An old line based on the O-ring bolts here. I pulled 2 of these old bolts out by hand, but there are 2 remaining on the route for your inspection. Four shiny new bolts exist along side these old relics....[more]   Browse More Classics in NM
