Suzanne nearing the top of the crack


Fun crack that angles right, then back left over a flake, finally ending in a great roof. Although the roof looks tough from the ground, there are some great hands that make the rating accurate. The crack has seen a number of climbs so it's smoother than most in the Queen Creek area. This climb is well worth doing.


Right leaning crack to the left of 'Projectiles'.


Trad. You'll need to sling the tree at the top to make a natural anchor or scramble off to your right.

There was an old sling around a boulder at the top but no tree. I set an anchor in the rocks back from the edge.
