Description

A small little overhanging rock with high quality routes. A nice area in any weather...even rain. While here, enjoy one of Mount Lemmon's finest cracks in "It Crack."

Getting There

Park at Molino Basin (same lot as for "The Ruins") and take the established path south until it ends where a faint path (you can see the rock from here) will lead across the wash and lead a bit to the southwest to the prominent overhung wall.

I added the other routes located at this crag. It's basically just what's in Squeezing The Lemmon II, and I'd be happy to add any further information anyone has. Mar 31, 2007

I see bolts near the right corner of the main wall and I am pretty certain that it isn't the Cousin It 5.9. Looks much harder than that, and some relatively attractive rock at the start... Anyone got information on it? Mar 11, 2018
