Comments: I personally found the movement enjoyable and the rock as solid as any of the sandstone in the canyon. The only fault I see is that the route is not sustained. The crux is substantially harder than the rest of the route.

Comments: Ankles away! Use caution as the crux sequence comes between the first and second bolts after the ledge. I sprained my ankle after falling here and hitting the ledge.

The route I climbed was entirely sport and finished on the anchors of West Face Direct. The climbing was mostly 5.10 with hard sequences at the start and above the ledge.

Comments: A unique route that forces movement outside the standard face climbing repertoire.

Comments: Kudos for this route and its neighbor to the right. From the ground these routes look like afterthoughts but each is sustained with unique features and great movement. Thanks Joe & Joe.

Comments: As the guidebook and comments state, it is best to walk off this route. While there are anchors they are not designed for rappelling and are too recessed. Ignoring this advice results in horrendous drag when pulling the rope.

The anchors should be lowered 5 feet.

Updated length from 50ft to 75ft.

Comments: I'm pretty sure this route isn't listed in Squeezing The Lemmon 3. This route is between Crystal Ball and Get Over It. I believe Crystal Ball starts at the roof to the left of the dead tree in this photo.

Comments: A great route (3 out of 4 stars) that overhangs 10ft in 55ft of climbing. A short, burly section leads to a questionable rest at the first of three overhangs. Wild technical face climbing with crimps, sidepulls, and a pocket leads to the second overhang and another questionable rest. A final redpoint crux throw gives way to featured knob climbing.

10 bolts to chain anchors; shade starting at 10:30am in July.

Comments: This route appears to be a fully equipped sport route. Rumor has it that it was started by Todd Ganglehoff and may have never been redpointed. The estimated grade is 12+/13-. I personally cannot comment on the difficulty or quality.

Comments: A wonderfully diverse 75ft line that rarely gets climbed. Slab climb to a perplexing roof. Decipher the starting move and pull jugs to overcome the overhang. An attentive belayer is likely helpful between the first two bolts. Continue into a sea of less-than-vertical knobs that offer a plethora of options, which is both a blessing and a curse. The climbing past the roof is on classic summit crag granite and is a hoot.

Comments: Chaindraws on bolts 3 & 4 have been removed. Setting the draws and cleaning the route is now more of a hassle. While they may not have been there originally they were certainly handy. The route and area already has glue and chaindraws. Can they be restored?

Thanks for the quicklinks Eric! Lazy climbers like myself applaud your efforts.

Comments: In mid-June this route sees shade at approximately 3pm. There are patches of shade on both the ground and route earlier.

Comments: Tree Top Flyer is a 13 bolt route of inconsistent difficulty that ascends wonderful terrain. In mid-June this route sees shade around 1:30pm. Prior to this there is patchy shade for the belayer.

Comments: 8 bolts to a chain anchor. Some might use a stick clip as the first bolt is high; however, the climbing isn't too difficult and the landing is flat. The route is shaded until approximately 2pm.

I climbed this route following the path of least resistance and ended up using the wide crack / arete from bolts 5 to 7. Restricting yourself to the face just seems silly as I was never more than an arms length from the bolt line. Climbed in this manner the route is around 12a and quite fun... more >>

Comments: A wonderful route, reminiscent of Knights of the Wrong Tissue. Perform a hard move to obtain the first bolt. Awkward feet and a long reach yield a jug and the second bolt. From here traverse along a rail and into a full rest. The second half and crux of the climb is classic Mount Lemmon tipped back edging. A well-deserved jug haul leads past the last bolt to the chains.

Comments: The stemming on this route is grin inducing. While I would have to look at it again to be confirm, falling while pulling the featured lip might be ugly due to the low angle climbing below.

Comments: This is a wonderful and sustained route. However, I would not call it slab. It is near vertical delicate face climbing. Despite having no holds break I had trouble trusting a number of the small crystals, which slightly detracted from my experience - with traffic or additional cleaning that might change. Finally the chain could be extended and old webbing removed. This current setup twisted our rope.

Comments: I believe this route has been extended. There are now three sets of anchors. The lowest anchors come after the hardest and best climbing. The second set are slightly higher but too recessed and likely the reason folks have complained of rope drag. The third and final set comes after an additional three or so bolts. The climbing is less than vertical and on slightly mossy terrain. This section adds length but not much else.

Comments: I took the liberty of reassigning this orphaned page to myself. I swapped 'Dwarves' with 'Drawfs', updated the elevation, and rewrote the description. I do not believe the route Aggro-culture exists as a sport route. Perhaps it is an old trad route?

Below is the previous description for comparison.

Wall of the Dancing Dwarfs prior to my edit.

I also updated Pay No Attention to the Man Behind the Curtain and Scarecrow to include the second pitches.

Please alert me to any corrections.
