Description 

The Triad features three routes, Truth, Beauty and Wisdom, which are all old school Joe Herbst off-widths.

Getting There 

The Triad is on the North side of Cactus Flower Tower, which is directly across Oak Creek Canyon from Solar Slab. Follow the Solar Slab approach and once in the canyon head into the creekbed at the scenic spot where the Solar Slab trail skirts the pink cliff band in a shady area with boulders and trees. Cut south and up the south side of the canyon. There is a giant, left-leaning tower-shaped boulder immediately in front of the Triad, it's best to approach on the right side of this block.

Beauty 5.10c 6b 20 VII 20 E2 5b NV : Red Rock : ... : The Triad
This seldom climbed splitter squeeze is a true test piece for the modern day crack climber. Beauty has been described as one of the harder free climbs of the Herbst era and is quite strenuous and run out. This climb is committing to the core, and will have you questioning your sanity, among other things of questionable importance. On this route you will encounter an offwidth crack that leads to a tight squeeze chimney which gradually widens. Be prepared to clip an ancient bolt then plug a Big B...[more]   Browse More Classics in NV
