Description 

This is the first formation on the left as you descend the gully. There are a number of good routes here with the red wall routes generally being harder and more intimidating. The first pitches of many of the red wall routes are three or four stars and can be climbed then lowered off with a 70M rope.


Getting There 

Drop down the gully as described in the Reef of Rocks "Getting There" section.

Follow the great hands to finger crack to a small roof. There are good jams to be found the whole way, but the only true crack moves are the fingerlocks leading to the roof. Great pro the entire way. Pull the roof (don't fall here), clip a bolt and continue to the anchors. This is a must do for Mt. Lemmon. This climb would be a classic almost anywhere. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ
