what a climb up one of those 6-shooters would be like, thanks for the pics. That is, by far, the most surreal landscape in that region, driving down that road into Canyonlands is something you need to experience once before you die, not to mention climb one of those peaks.
Thats quite a dust storm by the way.


Nice TR!

I love that area, and really enjoyed my climb of south sixshooter from several years back. There aren't too many easy/moderate tower climbs in that area; this is definitely one of the best! I don't think we found the 5.6 route though, as I remember negotiating several harder sections, including one right off the deck! Congrats on your first multi-pitch.


2nd Place

Hey Kevin,
check your PMs when you get a chance. I sent you one about winning 2nd place in the winter photo contest.



Nice job, Kevin, Sarah, et al

I guess the LoJ National Park HP list is all yours, eh? That one doesn't see much action.
Time atop any list is always temporary until ya get out there and climb!
Since those two peaks are so close to me, I've given them a lot of thought...
Thanks for the quality beta!


Great TR!
