A 2-pitch sport route in the Glitter Box area of Lower Devils. The first pitch climbs a 5.8 face past 4 bolts to a large ledge (60'). The second pitch is a fun and well bolted 5.10a climb from the ledge past 8 bolts to bolted anchors (80').

Although Sublime Line is listed as a 5.9+ in Marty Karabin's Queen Creek Guide, it's listed as a 5.10 in his foldout topo.


This climb is located just north of the start of the approach for Hidden Splendor. Continue north on the trail that runs along the crag passing a small stove-pipe pinnacle and scramble up to the base of the climb.


P1 - 4 bolts P2 - 8 bolts

Very fun top pitch! An easy solo route as it's not as long as Dacite and there's rest before crux to pull rope and decrease drag on the soloist. Spotted Marcy and Geir on their new project!

This can be linked into one long pitch if you runner some bolts long and can tolerate a bit of drag.

Anchors are all the way on top. It took me a minute to locate. Someone put a quicklink on the last bolt so apparently someone else had trouble finding them also.
In addition the anchors are 2 good looking bolts, but there is old sun dried webbing and cord to extend anchors over the lip. Would be great if someone could replace with chains and quicklinks.

Located next formation north of Adios Larry. Great route. Second pitch consistent throughout, not sure where the crux was. Great fun! No webbing on the summit anchors at this writing. No need for chains, clean rope pull from the existing hangers.

Edit: crux is felt like pulling through 3rd bold on a return visit.
