Description 

High up on the mountain and 20 minutes down the ridge from the road pretty much insures solitude and adventure. Trad routes on mostly good rock are here but dancing around some funk is part of the deal some times.

Getting There

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that this is probably the best crack I've climbed in SoAZ. Unfortunately, there's high overhead: a long approach, plus either mediocre finishing pitches or a complex descent, but the second pitch alone is worth it and there's a number of other good pitches in the area. A good strategy might be to climb the first two pitches and t...[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ
