A little taste of Southern France. Rock quality and features that are very reminiscent of the Verdon Gorge... right here in the Arizona strip. Start by doing the (right option) first pitch of Vesper. From the comfy belay ledge, take off and mind the gap, following the line of bolts right of Vesper. Some fun, relatively mellow intro climbing leads to a very tricky low angle crux moving left and then up to a line of pockets and then back reaching right to a left facing flake. Take a breathe...[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ

So this place is fucking amazing, hands down it is a world class climbing area without the world class hype. I think Todd Goss and crew are responsible for the development of this area ( someone please correct me if I'm wrong) we ended up going here after we got snowed out in St George, the nice fellow at the Desert Rat told us of this little known gem.


Needless to say I was in awe, multi pitch lime stone climbing doesn't really come close to covering it.. you could spend quite some time here and never climb the same route twice. get your shitting pants on cause when you see this you'll shit.

I posted a few less washed out photos of this place, Brandon M's photo of the unknown 10a was incredibly helpful, but I thought I'd contribute a bit so that those new to the area may have a better bearing where they are. still not much info on this place.. I assume there is a guidebook? also this place will get you strong... if you ever plan on slaying spain or greece... warm up here.
