toast heel hooking the roof

Portions of the approach and cliffs of this area are on private land. MORE INFO >>>


Fun moves through crazy features lead to a cruxy dihedral just before a 6 foot roof. After the roof, one more big crank is rewarded with easier climbing and nice exposure.


10 feet right of Spicy Crispy.


6 bolts (all orange hangers) to metolius rap hangers. SPECIAL PRECAUTION: when cleaning the route, do not swing out from below the third bolt or you may have a close encounter with a large cactus! The first bolt can be cleaned from the ledge. (edit) It would appear that lightning has removed the large saguaro so this is not an issue any more.

Also, a longer sling is advisable for the 4th bolt to reduce rope drag as the roof is rather large.
