Begin with a face move to gain the bottom of the incipient splitter which goes through a small roof. Climb zig-zagging finger crack to a stance and continue through thin hands and hands. The crack jogs to the right past another small roof and an easily bypassed wide section. The jams gradually widen to 3.5 Camalots through the final steep section. Descend from bolt/chain anchors over the lip. The rock is Navajo sandstone and not the best quality but could clean up with some traffic. Pretty cool route in Pritchett Canyon which is generally a durp fest during the tourist season but really nice in the winter. The climb see's winter sun until late afternoon.
The route is located approximately 1/4 mile up Pritchett Canyon just before the second drainage on the left. Keep an eye on the north side of the canyon at a point where the road is on the right side of the wash. Although it's a bit of a walk, there is almost no talus to deal with to get to the base of the climb.
Doubles from fingers to 3.5 Camalots. A purple metolius protects the really thin opening section.
