Amazing Movements On This Climb

Description 

One of the best routes of its angle/grade in the Tucson area. As good as Tsunami and Delirious and that is saying something. Starts about 40 feet right of the Spine Cave. It's barely overhanging but offers a lot of variety.

Protection 

Draws, chain anchors.

While from the ground this climb doesn't look special, the movements and holds are amazing. One of the best routes I've had the pleasure of climbing.
