Karma's Castle in the Air.  Fantastic views.

Karma's Castle in the Air 5.9 5c 17 VI HVS 5a  UT : San Rafael Swell : ... : San Rafael Knob
This is a well seen tower from many places in the south central swell. It overlooks Reds Canyon.Start on the southwest side of the formation and follow the nice looking crack past a potentially loose block continuing up the nice crack up to a ledge. Climb up through a loose section to a chimney, past a bolt to the top.This is 2 star climbing with a 4 star location... my thoughts? Three star climb. Descent: Rap from two bolts, I believe two ropes are needed. (I used two 50m ropes.)...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
