The Double Clutching Wall is a stunning series of tall splitter lines which include it's namesake route, 11:11, Crux Deluxe, The Super Chron, Wolverine and more. This tan wall faces south, and is the place to be on cooler days.

This section of the cliff also boasts a burly web of scrub oak above the routes which makes this the most protected section of cliff at the Waterfall Area. If it is windy or moist, this is your best bet for protection from rockfall above. I'm not giving any odds though.

The DC Wall is on the far right side, and begins just past the start of Aquarius Rising where the Right Wall makes an obvious sharp turn. The first route around the corner is Rude Awakening.

Getting There 

Hike to the far right end of the Right Wall and turn the corner.

Crux Deluxe is a fantastic all natural gear line which shares the same start as Double Clutching. Start up large flake pillar and mantle to small ledge on pillar right. Work left through excellent bottle neck finger locks and up through a short chunky, though solid section of rock. From a conspicuous diagonal #.75 placement at the 40' mark on climbers left, move up and right to a good thick flake. A little mental crux of the route is above you. Move gingerly into a hollow section of ro...[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ
