700' of moderate,dirty but fun and exciting climbing, that leads to a cool summit.The first pitch is the crux and has 17 bolts to chains. The second pitch has 10 bolts and crawls up a cool chimney-esk groove that has a really cool belay. It's a really cool pitch tambien!! Pitch three continues up the groove for 6 or so bolts then traverses out right at a 45 degree angle for thee bolts to a belay owl cove. Forth pitch continues up right on easy terrain to the summit. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ

We found someone's anchor at Courthouse Rock. It was left near the standard rappel. Describe it to me in an email. I'll get it back to you.
