Comments: This is more of a guess than real info. I'm guessing the climbing conditions are great, but that the road is closed.

Comments: Nice pic, great light. I believe this is actually Can't Wait Gotta go, the route to the left of Minuteman

Comments: Mantle felt more like v2 to me. Be aware that the last two bolts have odd hangers with unusually small holes that several of my carabiners would not fit through. bring skinny biners.

Comments: Perfect first 5.8 trad lead for me because the gear is great, and most of it can be placed from rests. To really sew it up bring lots of BD 1 and .75s

Comments: This is a fun, adventurous route in a great setting, and because the crux move is easily aided, this is one of the finest multipitch routes in NAZ for a 5.6/7 leader.

The approach was well cairned after leaving the main wash of Mormon Canyon.

P1: I'd recommend traversing left on a broad, rounded ledge about 20 feet below the obvious blocky roof. Keeps the grade to about 5.5, though pro is sparse. We belayed on a large ledge with a bush and pin/nut anchor directly below the limestone ledge an... more >>

Comments: routes from L to R:

Psycho Path
Thug Lite
Thug Life
California Love
Path of Light
The Chronic
Batso's Blitzo
2 of America's Most Wanted
Chop Your Dome Off!
Drive-by

The old trad routes Path of Light and Batso's Blitzo have effectively been replaced by the newer mixed routes California Love and The Chronic.

Comments: In my opinion it would make much more sense to have the anchors for this climb over the left exit. It is more direct and more fun.

Comments: On thug life pro is there when you need it, but the runouts are serious. bring small cams or nuts to protect above the bolts (blue/yellow metolious).

I believe the old trad route Path of Light is between the newer bolted lines California Love, and The Chronic about 50 feet right of Thug Life. The description on this page matches Thug Life, but Blitzo's (RIP) photos of Path of Light clearly show a different line.

Comments: I'm confused about which route is nick of time, and which is time slot... theres only one line of bolts

Comments: a fun variation is to climb up the crack to the left of the dihedral

Comments: If you're 6' 4" this will feel 5.6 because you'll be able to reach above the cruxes to large ledges. The views are stellar. Don't bring two ropes. Even if your rope is short you can break it into 3 rappels by using the anchors at the top of the first pitch without a problem.

Comments: I honestly thought the little bulge move on pitch 3 was the hardest at 5.7
