Description 

The Main Amphitheater is the stunning section of tall, steep rock in the middle of The Waterfall area. Essentially this wall starts just past The Sword and Bladerunner on the left and wraps around to the right margins at Black and Tan and Lord Humongous. This section includes the black falls, and is the first section of the cliff that you come face to face with if you wisely stuck to the gulley on the approach.

Getting There

Flanked by fire and cloaked in the shadow of darkness, Gemini Dragonfire rises on wings of basalt and takes flight through the heart of the waterfall. Moderate climbing leads to a boulder problem over a bulge of the blackest water-worn basalt. Above this bulge, slabby to vertical climbing on small edges, pods, and thin cracks leads up a left-slanting crack. A short step right gains the seam in the heart of the Dragon. Things begin to get thin as the wall becomes steeper. Small and positive ...[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ
