Slabby granite characteristic of this area, the crux seems to be areas where there are no real hands or feet just below that second bolt. Follow the streak right up the middle past a couple of large dark knobs.


See PHX rock II. Just right and downhill of "Mish Mash"


2 bolts, a Piton + one medium cam for first horizontal. Two bolt anchor at top. Rappel or walk-off(not recomended)

Watch for bees that are somewhat aggressive right now near the base and to the East! One chased us right down the mountain from the Potato area.
