This is the huge overhung chimney visible just above Atlantis when driving back to Phx from the Pond. It is kinda spooky looking, shady east facing wall. Climbs like a trad route with bolts. Crux is difficult stemming to pass the roof.


Walk up stream from Atlantis main area to just around the corner, work your way up about 100ft to base of overhanging chimney. The route goes up the broken face passing two bolts to gain the chimney. Another route exists just right on the face to the same anchor. An enjoyable TR.


buncha bolts, rap anchors (bring 10qds)

Wow, what an amazing and improbable line. The money pitch (P1) is well bolted, has fun stemming moves, and exciting finish make for a must-do! Several blocks look like they will come crashing down when you yard on them, but they are surprisingly well-bonded (reminds me of some of the crappy looking holds on schizo that turn out to be solid). Looking forward to doing the last two pitches to top out on the pinnacle. Great job, Manny!

A really cool and fun route. The chimney is pretty easy and there a few 5.10 moves early in the overhang. Getting past the last bolt I would say is 11b/c. It has some pretty wicked exposure to get the blood flowing also. I did however find a lose block about half way up the overhang, so be careful.

Does anyone know what the bolted route to the right is?

It's Black & Tan, a common name but a good climb: www.rockclimbing.com/routes/North_America/United_States/Ariz>>>
