Canada Eric sends Perfect Storm

Dean and I did this route back in 99 or 2000. never gave it a name and never got back on it until this year. I've lead it twice now and I have to say it's as good as any 5.12 sport route in southern AZ.
A hard bouldery start leads to continuously pumpy and tricky moves all the way to the chains.
Slightly overhanging with finger friendly holds on great rock.


2nd route past Willards Scott's Crack on the right side of the Weather Top.


Bolts, Chains

Awesome climb. Hard at the start, and sustained all the way to the chains. 100' of quality, pumpy, technical climbing. Great rock and superb movement. This line alone is worth the hike up here.
