Godhead North

Description 

Godhead North is the generally west facing set of cliffs that are opposite (east of) The Torch area and offer some excellent and difficult climbing. We are still projecting some of the climbs here, but there are a few climbs that enable either an escape from morning sun or a destination for afternoon sun. Much of the west-facing rock is heavily damaged by the sun and is loose and easily pulled off, but the climbs set so fart are free of this. There is ample exploration potential in this area and eventually we will have a trail connecting this area with Godhead South.


Getting There 

See Overview maps for location relative to other areas. Parking is the same as for The Torch area, but the trail into Godhead North is marked by a cairn about a hundred or two meters south off the road. Wind up the trail to access the separate buttress that "Wind Up on Sundays" is on and the main crags of Godhead North are just a bit farther uphill.

On the right you can see Low Hanging Fruit. Left is Jam of Doom

There is a huge, loose flake on the right. There's no danger if the belayer stays left near the gully. Just climb around it; stick to the left and the crack until the tuft of foliage half-way up.. There is also an obvious barely-attached rock at the start but you can climb around that, too. Quality route...[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ

The trail up to GH north was damaged by the post-fire runoff and the subsequent veg encroachment. Was hard to find even for DAS and me and we will eventually get cairns rebuilt and a trail back up. For the time being, head uphill!
