Description 

Upper-mountain grey stuff, Sport and trad, the best lines here are a couple cracks and a sick-hard slab, but other than that, not much else. Short hike but great camp spots nearby. Always in the shade. There is access to the top of the cliff.


Getting There 

Halfway up the ML Highway past Goosehead, Park at the left-hand pullout across from the Matterhorn boulders. Head into the woods, following the left-trending trail. You will climb steeply towards the highest point, then skirt the summit to the base of the cliff on a slippery pine-needle trail. As of the Aspen Fire Closures there was a huge downed tree at the first route that needs to be cleared.

A very short route, maybe 4 or 5 moves. Scramble halfway up the face to the actual climbing, put in a #2 and #3. An awkward jam; pull onto a rounded, moss covered ledge; place another piece; 2 more jams, and you're at the top....[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ

Lizard rock - an absolute gem. If you are in Tucson and climbing this place is an absolute must. Bomber rock, tiny holds, run-out bolts, super solid placements,... unfortunately nearly no anchors. Tons of big names in Tucson have had a hand in the development of this place. About the only sub par aspect of this place is the views.

Only statements #3 and #4 above are correct. However, if you're interested in checking this place out the following photos for Twelve O'Clock High (5.10+R) [unsure if its this one or High Noon (5.9+X), ref SQII] may deceive you into thinking it's totally rad.
