Donamatrix 5.8+ 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c  AZ : Central Arizona : ... : The Headwall
This is a water streak, holds are fairly stable but climb softly anyways. Pebbles rain down from the top of the Headwall and continue down eventually. Mostly knobs and edges in the matrix make for good holds. Stay low in the traverse to the left on the first pitch to keep the bolt above you. Use a long sling....[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ

This is a great crag! There was a small beehive in between the Cameltoe and Spicebox routes. They were fairly inactive so we felt comfortable climbing Ghastly Rubberfat but we didn't get any closer. I would suggest climbing Rain of Terror and Sleazy Street early since they get shade in the morning and get pretty hot in the afternoon. That way you can climb Spicebox and Curious George in the afternoon when they get shade. It was pretty chossy so I would advise bringing a helmet or buying one if you want to climb at this crag.
