|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||6917 ft / 2108 m|
Ascent Trip ReportA very remote peak. Three day backpack loop. BMT to camp 1 on the rim of West Rim Death Hollow. Ascended a pure SE sloping Buttress of solid Navajo sandstone. Excellent friction climbing with sustained Class 3 for 450 vertical feet. Could not avoid one or two Class 4 moves, but likely possible. Climbing was too enjoyable to look for easier. This is the buttress to the climbers left of a major Class 2 gully visible everywhere from the SE. I descended the same with a varying move or two climbers left.
The whole peak would be Class 1 if via the north. Great way to start a backpack morning. Approach via the Death Hollow Rim on stone and one will avoid crypto. I left the rim and dropped 75 vertical feet into the canyon for ease of travel on slickrock.
