just in time before the snakes come out 3 people, 5 pitches, 2 ropes, 5 hours from bottom to top approach took less time than the trip back to the truck. huge lizard and big pre-historic grasshopper AWESOME MOMENTS
Since no one failed to mention...at this time all belay stations are relatively new and with two shiny anchors. Recommend a careful rap (need two ropes) to avoid the gnarly walkoff options No clear trail up the lower wash until you reach the major wash veering left up to headwalls, look for cairns
This route is ok. However, pretty good training exercise for longer routes as the approach and descent are pretty good. The rock is loose in some areas and the chimneys are pretty cool. i would recommend as th view from the tops is stellar. Route can be done in 4 pitches.
