Park at the old drill pad site and walk up the road ~10 minutes. Look for cairns on the left and follow them up another 10-15 minutes to Catopia.

Protecting the wide crack will be a matter of personal preference. ...[more] Browse More Classics in AZ

This is a marvelous addition to the Refuge with a broad selection of climbs on really excellent rock. The views down into the Power Line Rd. valley, as well in the Refuge are excellent and the approach is well marked and easy to find. Nice find indeed and great development effort led by Marcy and Geir. Was great to get out there a couple times already!!
