Getting There 

Park at the Devil's Sinkhole parking lot and begin the approach as per Jap Head. Walk along the trail to Jap Head for about 10 minutes until under the saddle between Morning Glory and Jap Head.

Once in the saddle between Morning Glory and Jap Head boulder up the short headwall then turn left and scramble up.

One star for the climbing.)...[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ
