The Petard

Average Rating = 0.00/5 The Petard

The Petard found off Valley of Gods loop road. Standard route ascends the double-crack system on left side, then traverses right on large ledge, ultimately angling back left to summit via left skyline. The first pitch has some of the loosest rock I've encountered. Fortunately, it wasn't my lead... The existing descent anchors on top are a poor solution, almost guaranteeing a jammed rope. A much better/quicker/safer (and exhilarating) descent would be a free air 2-rope rappel over the righthand roof. As of 2004 this preferred method didn't exist. Drill and pins anybody?

Following an ascent of Eagle Plume Spire, deep in the heart of Valley of the Gods, I couldn't help but self-portrait my wrecked dogs. Photo by Darren Singer.

Eagle Plume Spire trundle

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Eagle Plume Spire trundle

At first glimpse, this image appears to be a misfire. Closer examination reveals a refrigerator-sized (VW?)block taking a 300 foot ride to the talus below. Why nobody had purposely (or by accident) knocked this block off the route is beyond me (I attempted a hand jam behind it and it moved...). This effort sets a personal best trundle, exceeding efforts in the Grand Cyn by at least 50%. Photo by Darren Singer.

Pulling the exit moves onto the summit of Eagle Plume Spire. Dirty yet fantastic route. I had sand in my ears for weeks. Photo by Darren Singer.
