Description 

Granite Mountain hosts 80+ routes (as per Bill Cramer's guide), generally with two to four pitches each. That's a lot of routes for the small cliff that it is. What makes it even more remarkable are it's traversible horizontal features that allow for an exponential variety of ways to combine pitches and create new adventures. If you think you've climbed everything at "The Mountain", try staring at Cramer's guide for awhile and you will begin to see endless ways to link pitches and follow new lines, potentially 7-12 pitches in length. As you envision, and implement such visions, you will find that there are hidden gems up there that you never would have found otherwise.

The Soul-Man Traverse 5.11a/b 6c 23 VIII- 23 E3 5c PG13  AZ : Central Arizona : ... : Granite Mountain Link-Ups
This route follows The Hot-Line, or the Hiccup Deluxe linkup, then traverses down Camptown Races, to a sliding down of the bottom half of Carl's Corner's second pitch. Then goes up Slammer Jam, to Backwards under the Candyland pitch under the Great Roof, then over to Kinpin's last two pitches. This is an unconventional approach to climbing in some respects, and may seem a little silly, but it is a full on, intense climb, and connects many of the best pitches on the face in a unique fashion.
