      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

[TR] Utah - Fisher Towers: Kingfisher - Colorado Route 4/4/2008

Recommended Posts

Trip: Utah - Fisher Towers: Kingfisher - Colorado Route


Date: 4/4/2008


Trip Report:

So lazy saturday and the weather's changing - here's some desert stoke from earlier this year. Just a quick photo-TR.


I was living in Salt Lake City earlier this year and I wanted to see the desert towers. I also wanted to see what it took to solo a 'wall'. This was my first time to solo anything beyond just short fixing pitches. The climbing was a lot of rivets and drilled angles but mixed in there was some 5.8 free climbing and some C2 sandstone aid. I think it was about 5 or 6 pitches (grade IV) and leads to a beautiful flat summit overlooking the desert. I managed to get back to the car and not need a headlamp w00t!


Early morning start, but not too early. Kingfisher is on the left



The start: bolt ladder to 5.8 chimney



Looking up at the 1st chimney...will it be as muddy and bad as 'they' say...???




Nah... not so bad. and there's actually some, errr, gear.



whew... out of the chimney and cleaning p2



Combining pitches is fastarrrr...



"...i can see my car from here....



the last anchor before the last chimney pitch(a keen eye will be able to see how i almost fq'ed myself here...)



i'm stuck... really i was for a while, so i took a picture



free and on top



the titan looks bitchin!!



the trail



back at the car



Gear Notes:

you can pretty much do this w/ a single set of camalots, offset aliens, and rivet hangers.


Approach Notes:
