On the West side of the pillar that houses Bakefest In America, climb the steep, featured face to anchors. Named for an amazing woman who was a mom, PBC organizer, yoga/stretch'n'retch instructor, and friend. The short first pitch (Act One)makes accessing the start a lot easier.


Center of the Amphitheater, just south of Slappin' Stinky and Drunk With a Skunk. The trails here are now shit (since AZ climbers climb, they don't work on trails... that wold be the task of mere plebes, puh-leeze!) so your best approach is to hike the Widowmaker from Diamond Dog to the Stormwatch wall, hike up and around the end of the Stormwatch to below the route "Ronin", then drop in from above, since you can easily reach the anchors from the plateau.


6 bolts, 2 anchors

I did not see an anchor on top of Act One (the first pitch), so bring a few pieces to belay your second
