A nice line up the west face through several roofs & bulges. Start up easier climbing to the first (crux) roof. A couple hard moves gets you to jugs, which continue to the top. Although the technical crux is short, the overhanging nature of the climb makes for a pumpy route all the way to the top....[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ
