Description 

This small, bizarre area is located behind Punch and Judy towers. At some points the alley is no more than 8 feet across. This area is home to some hard routes and gets afternoon shade.

Getting There 

Park as for Punch and Judy towers, which is the 2nd pullout downhill from Windy Point on the south side of the road. Walk down to the base of the towers and continue north/east. Walk back uphill on the far side of the tower and climb a short rope. You are now standing at the entrance to the alley. 7 min from the car.

This phenomenal line may be the best at the grade on the mountain. Cast off through precarious terrain to the high first bolt. Clip one more and begin tackling the mind blowingly blank face through immediately difficult and varied sequences. Fierce and unrelentingly technical climbing on a variety of holds brings you to two vicious cruxes stacked at around the 80ft mark. Wildy big moves bring you to the chains. Its not over till its over....[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ
