North America, United States, Utah, Arches National Park

Arches National Park. Cameron Burns and Ann Robertson climbed a tower by its west face in the Great Wall region of the park. Left Nut (5.9, A2) is located just left of the Phallus, a tower whose name appears on park maps! These towers are unique climbs since they are composed of the rotten lower level of Arches Entrada sandstone. In the Klondike Bluffs, Leslie Henderson and Mike Baker climbed Time Marches On (5.8, A2+), on Time Tower. The route ascends the southwest comer of this prominent Marching Men Tower. This was the last of the Marching Men Towers to be ascended. Real Women Climb Offwidths (5.11) was climbed by Dave Medara and Millie Birdwell in the Courthouse Wash area. Mars Hotel was climbed by Kyle Copeland and Eric Johnson by If I Only Had a Brain (5.10, AO). The second ascent of the tower was made by Henderson and Baker by an east-face route, Lost in Space (5.10, AO).
