History

View historical timeline

This pillar gets its name from the fact that Miguel stashed his rope on the top of this pillar, deep inside the big crack, to save having to carry it up when we decided to explore it a few days later. Fortunately, the rope was still there, unbothered by any people or critters.

Grade Route

Start on the west side of the base of the pillar, in the corner, beneath a shallow crack and groove. Move up, plugging some creative pieces in the groove, then scramble up to the sloping ledge beneath the big, obvious fist-sized crack. Plug big cams in the crack and climb your way all the way to the top. It is an easy walk-off on the back side (east) of the top. There are no anchors or bolts on this pillar. GEAR: Big cams up to #5 (or #4). Big hexes are useful too.
