Fun overhang with solid holds! Start in back left of overhang using the big hold under the roof. Pop out tot he lip and traverse the lip into the large pockets/huecos. Top out in middle.There is also a V2/3ish traverse that continues the entire length of the roof and tops out at the far right end. I think it called Superfly. It is sharp, but an easy tick if it piques your interest. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ
