This massive rock, wit hits 400-foot wall, stands at the head of the canyon. The majestic formation is at the end of the worn approach trail, just auphill from Whitetail Rock. This is a great place to climb on a hot day, as all routes lie ont he north face. One either can descend via rappel down POWER TOOLS, or precariously downclimb off the uphill, southeast bshoulder. Extreme care must be taken in the loose scramble down to the top bolts on POWER TOOLS.

The Young Guide says 2 60's are needed to rap off Citadel. I added rings to an intermediate belay on Power Tools, now only ONE 60 meter rope is needed to go top to bottom. Just be careful scrambling down to the top anchors on Power Tools, it's very mossy and very loose.
