One of the better 11- climbs on Lemmon and should be on your tick list if you're after routes at that grade. Start in corner trending out and right onto face. Then up through crux to larger holds and slightly left to a rest. Up and over small roofs to finish. Anchors are just out of sight over the last roof. Most stop at the chains rather than taking it to the top....[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ

Okay, there is a blue Porta Potty stuck upside down, door ajar, in a chimney on Punch & Judy towers. It is perfectly set like a #400 Stopper--a ten-foot sling and it'd be perfect pro. It's about 100 feet below the road and 30 feet up the chimney, just right of Lizard Marmalade. It can't possibly be there accidentally. There has to be a great story behind this.

I'm pretty sure that porta-potty was sitting in the Windy Point parking lot a few days before the end of road reconstruction in 2003..

Then the next day they reported on the news it had been thrown off the cliff..
