North America, United States, Utah, Titan, Fisher Towers, Sunevil Chimney

Titan, Fisher Towers, Sundevil Chimney. On April 28 Harvey T. Carter, Robert Sullivan, Tom Merrill and Ken Wyrick completed an eight-day, eleven-pitch new route on the Titan. This very direct and largely overhanging crack and chimney system rises 900 feet. There were six hanging belays and vertical caked mud had to be climbed and chimneyed. They used fewer bolts than is usual in the Fisher Towers and about 135 pitons. They also made the first ascents of Dunce Rock and the Sidekick in the same area. Climbing of July-August, 1971 gives a fuller account on pages 2 and 3.
