Right Rib 5.6 4c 14 V 12 S 4b  AZ : Central Arizona : ... : Sven Tower 3
Good solid rock past two bolts to first pitch crux - a semi off-width chimney easily protected. Second pitch is short past two bolts and great belay station. Third pitch goes across the chasm to the left and up the obvious Y-shaped crack above. Move across the ramp leading up - you can sling the horn and then up two moves to the top anchors....[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ

The City of Scottsdale and the local AMC members have spent the time to make sure there is trail signage in this area. Although there are a number of faint trails to Sven 1 ... please try and use the trail that leads to 3 and work your way back to 2 instead of blazing up the side of the mountain.
