DescriptionCrags Against Humanity are two recently developed cliffs low on Catalina highway with routes aimed squarely at the beginner and intermediate Mt. Lemmon climber. The bulk of the routes are rated 5.9 and under with uber-friendly bolt spacing. This will be a great climbing destination for getting that first lead climb under your belt.
The climb angles range from slab to slightly overhung much like the rest of Mt. Lemmon crags with the real gems being the near vertical climbs with big holds in the 5.7-5.9 range.
Both cliffs get shade from about mid morning on, which means that you can comfortably climb here up until it is pushing well into the 90’s in Tucson.
Getting ThereDrive up Catalina highway until just past milepost four. There is a large pullout on your left directly at a drainage with culvert going under the highway - park here.
There is a worn in access path that begins near the downhill end of the pull out just left of a small mesquite. The path contours the cliff directly under the climbs. Please stay on the path going to and from the climbs.
