Tuttle Creek Obelisk, School’s Out. In June Brent Norum and I established the second route on this striking pillar. Starting a short distance right of the Rowell-Jones route, ascend a right-slanting ramp for 200 feet to the base of a large corner. Two crack pitches lead to a huge ledge. From here ascend the right of three possibilities: a curving, “quarter-moon” crack. Above this, the original route is joined. NCCS III, F9.
