This is a new area we're working on in LDE with some good route potential. The first route in this area is Cold Rush, one of the more difficult lines we've establised at LDE.

Getting There 

From the main trail leading to the Entrance tower, head right (south) toward the Coop. Just before the Coop turn right, head downhill for about 50', then continue south on a well-marked trail toward the climb. A hand line is present to help negotiate a short but nasty gully leading to a spacious belay ledge.

The second pitch is beautiful and challenging; it is one of the best pitches I've done in Queen Creek.Pitch 1: From the comfortable ledge at the start of the climb, he...[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ
