|The Down Under
North facing and shady but comfortable on 70 degree days.
Routes have a much different flavor than other Milagrosa climbs.
Bring a light rack for the two corner crack climbs.
Hike into the canyon via the creek bed. The cliff is directly underneath the first climbs you would come to if you hiked in on the trail. Formation as two striking (for Mt. Lemmon) diedrals with routes also on either side.

My understanding of the routes from right to left (downstream to upstream):
Give It A Burl
The Under Over
My favorites were Sheila Tester, Digit-redo and The Under Over. Most of these climbs have a bolt or two of rotten rock before cleaning up. A couple of the bolts seemed a bit reachy but I may have just been looking for a quick clip. The Under Over is the most unique climb of the area and perhaps the only one without a comparable, superior climb on the Main Wall.
All in all, a fun addition to the crag. Thanks.

Watch what you pull on and have belayers wear helmets.

Climbed all but the Under Over & Koala Corner. Interesting, but chossy. Definitely be aware as a belayer, or wear a helmet. No Gimmes here. One of the more kid-friendly crags on the mountain.
