Myself, Katie and a Spencer met Pernell and Mel to climb Tritle Peak this morning. By Canyon standards the cost of entry for Tritle Peak is pretty low, as the diminutive peak sits a mere four-tenths of a mile off the north rim. Tritle is probably not a destination climb and peak, but we were all in the area and were happy to meet up for a lower key summit.

We got to Roosevelt a little before seven and left shortly after. Pernell arrived shortly after us and met us at the base of the climb. I was about three quarters of the way up the easy climb when they arrived. It took us 30 minutes to reach the base with a pretty leisurely pace. There is a maintained trail for the first two tenths of a mile and then a pretty easy to follow use trail the rest of the way. Traverse west of the first formation and then approach the base of the climb by contouring around Tritle to it’s north ridge.

The climbing was pretty easy and a little unspectacular, but the summit was great and we all had fun. When looking up from the base of the climb, take the obvious weaknesses to the notch, which involves a traverse along a loose edge. Then make the semi committing move into the notch and climb straight to the summit. I would recommend a single rack up to a number four, with maybe a couple extra sizes in the bd .3-.5 range. A single 60m will get you down. Rap off the large bush on the obvious ledge just below the summit block.

A great little summit and a great morning off the north rim with good friends. I could definitely see myself running up this one again in the future. It took us about three hours to get five people up the summit and back to the rim.

Situated below and beyond the tourist Overlook known as Roosevelt Point is what the locals refer to as "Roosevelt Point"

This is a beautiful point below and due east of Tritle Peak
Robert, Erik, Jamie and I gathered into my car, headed out to Walhalla where We traversed some little known deer path below and near the base of Tritle to get there and WOW. Again, as always, the views from Walhalla Plateau never disappoint!

I spotted some ruins and even a "moqui step"! Score!
The local who took us out there had been out there dozens of times and never saw the ruins before. He claimed he needs to hike with us more hahaha

Short walk from east-facing Roosevelt Point to a north-facing overlook. On the way there beware of metal rods sticking out from the ground (they might have held wooden log steps or something) and at the overlook itself there are some trees fallen across the trail so you need to go over or go around.

This sweet little hike is along the road to Cape Royal. There are many choices of places to stop and look or stop and hike or both. We were trying to keep our eye on time as we were headed back to the valley but we thot this quick little loop would fit just fine.

As you know if you've been to the Canyon, the vistas are simply incredible anywhere you stop and this is no exception. It was fun to take our time and photos as we enjoyed the wide open vista. I would like to be able to identify more landmarks so an interpretive sign would be nice but it was great nonetheless. There is definitely some remnants from the fire of 2000 including one blackened tree that is laid out across the edge of the canyon in front of you and another burnt stump that jets up from the ground.

There was also some varied flora along the path but it's mostly a wide open trek and on this day we could see a long way to the north and northeast. The most prominent point was Tritle Peak.
