Comments: The routes on this wall are pretty good and shady. I thought this was rather stout for 10d. Move fast thru the first three bolts

Comments: Long time since I've been on this beaut. I remember a 1-1.5 rigid friend above the pin. The first 25-30ft is in your face. Cool crux moves and great crack climbing above. You can step right into Cred Gap/finish or belay. Second pitch is classic Mt.Lemmon funkness. Step out left to the airy crack system and head to the top. Feels like Stronghold climbing. Probably no harder than 10b but you will hold on hard.

Comments: Numbers 4 and 5 felt more like the original 11d rating to us the other day. Tough to on-sight but once sussed out are mid climb boulder problems. Both are really fun. I give the nod to Number 5 as the best out of the two.

Comments: Really good!! Giant holds. One spot in the middle has smaller than average holds and is a bit reachy. Hang tough here, crank thru, and the holds get really good again. Fire to the top.....sick!!!

Comments: Did this one the other day....pretty good.

Pitch 2 - 5.9+ Fun/tricky chimney. Be careful pulling out of it up higher. Loads of rotten rock and your belayer is right below all of it!

Pitch 3 - 5.10a. Cool stemming and jamming. Good pro. Classic

Pitch 4 - 5.10a. Plug your big cam in the wide crack above the belay. I had a #5 WC flex friend. Pull a(one) lieback move with pro at your waist and hike your feet up to a giant foothold. The rest of the pitch is a yawner and very easy. IMO pitc... more >>

Comments: Did this route the other day.....really fun! We found all bolts to be in good shape...no loose hangers, etc. I found both 'crux' pitches to be no harder than 10b. The upper/last crux pitch has a runout between the 2nd and 3rd bolt which protects with whatever gear you brought up to protect the lower sections. I didn't think the rock quality on this pitch was as bad as advertised. Yes, it was a bit sandy in spots and some of the holds are ready to snap but there are bolts/pro every 8ft so enjoy t... more >>

Comments: The 11- variation is quite good. Steep face climbing with crack gear. At least 3 stars IMO.

Comments: Link this into Pegasus(upper headwall) for the full value old-school pitch. The rock and moves on Pegasus are brilliant.

Comments: Did the route yesterday....AWESOME! We moved fast but were held up a bit by a party in front and started late. Did the walk-off in the dark. We were able to get down to the saddle behind Whiskey Peak before it got dark. Straightforward from there. Could be trickier doing the upper part of the decent in the dark but there are alot of carins. Thx to all who stacked rocks! Only brought 1 rope...rapping the route looks like a PITA. Rack = TCU's 0,1,2, set of stoppers, camalots(.5,.75,1,doubles of 2,... more >>

Comments: The first pitch is a good sport route to round out your day if time is short .The 12a sport route to the right is really good too.

Comments: Ditto on the comments above. I used triples on 0 and 1 TCU's. Much of the crack is parallel so placing nuts is a bit trickier in these sections. Great route to push yourself on as the pro is good and you can get it anywhere you want.

Comments: This is a good one! Good holds and stances appear when in doubt. I used small nuts and tcu's on the headwall part. Didn't need the brass.

Comments: 1st pitch: 5.7 buckets to a 5.9+/10a move over the roof...more 5.7
2nd pitch: 5.7+ .Climb straight over the belay for the best rock and experience. There is good pro up and giant holds up there until you get to the first bolt.Stays easy! The rock to either side is chossy.
3rd pitch: Do the traverse into the corner. One bolt for the belay in the corner. Med cams for backup if you wish.
4th pitch: 5.7 fun climbing to the end of the corner. Maybe a 5.8 move up there? Good, small wire pro from big s... more >>

Comments: Your description is right on the mark. Not a better feeling exists when you clip that upper bolt. Seems to get harder as you get further into the runout. Thought the upper crux mantle was a 10c move itself. Awesome route!!!!!

Comments: First pitch is barely 5.9 with outstanding pro. Bring 4-5 long runners up with you. Got to go 2-3 moves above your gear to get to the belay. Second pitch is 10a...little funky and good!!

Comments: Outstanding route with loads of good gear. Mostly TCU's and wired's. I was greeted at the top by a giant Chuckwalla 3 feet from my head whilst zoning out at the belay!! I found it barely 11a. Good route for a 5.10 leader to take a stab at.

Comments: I also found the loss of anchor on these routes to be a PITA. Really absurd to have a fully bolted route w/o a bolted anchor. This seems to be common throughout the park. Instead, lets have people do repetitive walk-offs destroying vegetation?

The anchor on Colorado Crack is mank but currently backed up by a long, fresh sling and rap ring donated by a generous soul.
