The Tabernacle A ridge route from Rattlesnake Camp goes to the saddle north of The Tabernacle. The trail to the top passes up the west slope and through an easy break. Great view!! See Tabernacle Route.
Routes Critical route east into Birdfoot Canyon connects the broad river basin area upriver with the east end of the Tonto Platform. Going west passes Sheba Temple (Sheba saddle) to connect with Asbestos Canyon.
1997 May - Day-hike with AzRA; knowing how easy this ridge access was gave confidence for the trek the following year.
1998 May - Lunch stop on day 5 of North Rim Passage trip.
