Description

High above Ash Spring, up the canyon from Cold Sweat, sits an obscure classic splitter: Strategic Arms; a tall, overhanging corner set in a 100-foot tall, beautiful, black varnish wall. Another Calico crag which makes you feel like you're a million miles from everyone.

Getting There

Another crag visible from the Kraft parking. Hike off the backside of the Kraft parking lot and follow the road to the old house foundation. Take the trail down into the wash and follow it on the left side to Ash Spring and its boulders. Continue up the steepening canyon past a tall slab on your left (Cold Sweat), and work your way up slabs and across and around boulders until you're up under the wall (Intercontinental Breakfast will be visible from below). From here, either do a fifth class move up and over an eight foot high break, or go around to the right and circle back down into the slot below the wall. ~30 minutes.
