Description 

Middle Solitude is essentially all the cliffs on the West side of the canyon in between Lower Solitude and Higher Solitude. The first section starts just as Lower Solitude ends on the east side.

Getting There 

Hike to Lower Solitude, and then just as that cliff band starts on the east side, head into the ravine and hike up that until you reach the first cliff band. No trail through that area yet, so it is a little bushwacky. Or, for Lunch Box Rock, hike the regular Higher Solitude trail, and that will take you right past the formation.

Naked Lunch is a fine line, and a good warmup if you don't mind crimping a bit. Stick clip the first bolt, and then enjoy some powerful moves off the bat, followed by some crimpy laybacking in the middle section. The top is filled with sculpted jugs that will probably make you smile......[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ
