The Best approach

The Best approach

Walk from the parking lot down to the overlook favoring the left hand railing. Once at the bottome of the stairs, hop the left (north) railing and follow a faint path along ridge till it fades. Keep going and keep te draw to your left. Look for a rock caren to mark the drop in point. Head left down steep dirt till the gulley bottom. You can't miss the fixed rope. Once at the bottom, turn right and stay close to the cliff bottom for less pain. Eventually you will find the shale. WEAR THICK LEATHER GLOBES, CARHARTT'S, AND JACKET.

Hay Thanks.
The Locust is what I remember the most!!
Hay were you thinking what I was thinking? What if there was a nice 5.7 crack line that went up the Coconino sand to get up to Point Imperial? That way you'd hop the railing, walk straight toward the tower, and when you get cliffed out, you could rap down the 5.7 to get you to the hermit shale. That way when yer done with the tower, you could climb up and out rather than bushwack. What do you think?
