Description 

The proudest "boulder" at the Draw, this massive double roof houses about half a dozen problems. Four of them start in the same place at the back of the main roof and tackle four separate, highly difficult lines to amazing headwall finishes. The linkup of the two roofs is one of the coolest endurance problems in Flag.


Getting There 

Walk out into the Draw for about 20 minutes, passing the rest of the main areas, until you see the Mars Roof on the right. You'll know if you pass it because the draw flattens out and there are no more boulders.

Crawl into the cave and begin at a wide pocket far back in the roof (starting feet out is acceptable.) Aiming for the obvious tufa pinch on the headwall, navigate the complex maze of pockets to an undercling and sloper at the lip, then set feet and pull a difficult cross to the pinch. Bump right along more underclings; one more frequently heartbreaking throw gains the good holds at the lip. This complex and sustained line is super fun and understandably popular....[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ
