The Viper

The Viper 5.11d 7a 24 VIII 25 E5 6a  AZ : Northern Arizona : ... : Bedrock
The crux is moving to and past the last bolt. A funky R hand pinch/Gaston enables one to slap a bad pocket on the arete and, thus, make it to the bucket flake on top. Shuts are a bit off to the right, so TR climbing would be sketchy. This is a fun route. A great knee-bar rest can be found just before the serious climbing starts....[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ

I've heard that this area is occasionally closed for nesting birds (judging by the amount of bird poop in some of the huecos, I'm inclined to believe that it's true), so keep an eye out for posted closures.

Climbed Barney Rubble and Viper in the winter of '05/'06 and by the spring of '06 there was a Great Horned Owl nesting on the ledge 2/3 of the way up Barney Rubble. Don't know if the owl has been back but if she's there climbing any route on this wall will spook her off the nest. People usually mark the area if the owl is nesting there. Also, in the evenings you could see her hanging out on the big pines near the Swiss Tower.
