Featured Route For Granite Basin Crags
Rock Climbing Photo: Straight up the crack. Aptly named route

Hamburger Helper 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a  AZ : Central Arizona : ... : Northeast Face
The obvious crack visible from the loop trail. Hand to fist size, and even wider in some spots. Straight up then finish on the flake as the crack turns slightly left near the top. Slightly overhanging for the first half. Rock surface is rough and will chew up your hands, but fun route nonetheless....[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ
