Comments: Just a quick historical comment. Pretty sure I did this problem many, many years ago if it is the one with softball sized river rocks in the landing zone and an undercut alcove at the bottom...?

Comments: Gate still closed. I looked at the new forest service map and this road, FR631, is not on it hence it "no longer exsists" for motorized travel. Weak sauce! I hope I am wrong

Comments: Watch for bees that are somewhat aggressive right now near the base and to the East! One chased us right down the mountain from the Potato area.

Comments: Bees: If you are climbing near the "Potato" be aware of a group of pretty aggresive bees. They literally chased me and my partner down the hill! They are grouping around the blue flowering shrubs in the area.
Also, the webbing on top of Saguaro House needs to be replace and a rap ring added. I will replace next time I am out there.

Comments: Pumpy climb! I had a great time being reminded of what Non-Crack climbing feels like in the forearms. As usual with Queen creek pockets, on this route, don't look for whats perfect, look for what quickly works.

Comments: This is a really great warm-up if you haven't done pockets for a while. Also a perfect New Climber route. When looking at the Pocket pow-wow wall, just look right(east) at the rounded arete.

Comments: There is a 2 bolt anchor with a sling at the top of this climb. There was not a rap ring so we did the walk off. Next time I'm back, don't know when that will be, I will replace the sling and add a ring. Chil and Fun 5.7
P.S. I also believe that it is on the SOUTH/West part of the hill, not the north

Comments: On pitch 5 (or if you link...then pitch 4), make sure that after the 2nd bolt, you go RIGHT of the bulge to hit the belay. I skirted left, missed the belay completely, and did a "nice" simul-climb with my partner for about 100 ft to the next anchor. P.S. Don't be fooled by the bright pink sling about 50 feet above that second bolt, I thought it was the anchor and it ended up looking like someone had jammed a pencil in the rock and tied a sling to it!

Comments: WOW! Awesome climb. I thought...yeah right, this start doesn't look slippery. Whoops, fell on my first piece when my foot slipped. Over compensate the # of draws that you think. Does a #5 really protect that squeeze? I had a 4 that I definitely couldn't use. Watch for HUGE drag at the top (big sling?). Careful to stay left on the repel or face a bad edge.

Comments: I know it's not the hardest thing to grunt through, but shouldn't this line get a little more respect than 5.3? The two roofs on the second pitch are definitely strong climbing moves.

Comments: Fun one!! If your tall enough (around 6 feet) and you don't mind getting feet a little high, I don't think that this is too finger size dependent. You can hit tiny finger tips low, or get a much wider bottleneck up higher. (If i'm remembering correctly)

Comments: !!!CAUTION!!! Top of climb has a Soccerball sized rock about to blow. My partner was going to pull it off but flew right by it. It's the best hold on the route, just before the topout.

Comments: Be EXTREMELY cautious about the parking lot here. I have seen one and heard of another break-in and this Sunday was a victim myself. Smashed window and stolen items.
