North Sixshooter Peak. This tower, about 300 feet high, stands at the summit of a talus cone about 20 miles northeast of Monticello. On April 4, Rick Horn, Jack Turner, and I got halfway to the summit before we were defeated by a sandstorm. On April 14, Horn and I returned with Steve Komito and reached the summit. Our route is on the south side and has one lead of lower fifth class climbing and three leads of easy direct aid. The rock is good sandstone except for the last 30 feet, which are stacks of loose flagstones.
