Islet looks phenomenal, and the pic of the traversing pitch is a wild one. Thanks so much for sharing.

I don't think that I climbed as many boulder problems on my last road trip as you climbed towers on yours. Holy crap!

Joe-Dang - way to get after it. Like Todd said, you got soooo many towers done in such a short period of time - after 30 years of climbing in the desert I still haven't done a bunch of those. Great job and good to meet you in the Fishers!!

Fantastic. Several years' worth of towers in one crazy desert trip. Great photos of the Valley of the Gods.
