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

This is one of the most aesthetic lines in the Amphitheater when viewed from below. Start as for Rough Around the Edges, but where that route breaks off right, continue straight up. There is a #1 BD in a pod by the break before the steep climbing and the bolts begin. The upper portion of the route is both burly and sequential, and offers several hard boulder problems stacked on top of each other sectioned off by adequate shakes. Follow bolts through the stunning obtuse dihedral. If you c...[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ
