May be the steepest 11 in the canyon and pretty fun. There was talk originally that you should avoid the crack high up (and thereby increase the grade), but the crack is just too tempting.


Steep line on right-hand face of the Sahuaro Corners dihedral.

Climbed this route again yesterday (guess I like it) and came up with the following observation: going left (to the crack) after clipping the 4th bolt made the route seem like 10+; going left after clipping the 5th bolt made it seem like 5.11. In my opinion, it's a bit contrived (but more fun) to stick to the face until after clipping 5th bolt, since the crack is so close once you hit the big ledge. Feb 2, 2009

Chunky Monkey...........I forgot about that one. Yeah they are about equally steep and CM is a better route. Good catch. Feb 7, 2007
You think this route is steeper than the 5.11 2nd pitch that starts off the ledge with the big Saguaro on the sunny side. The 5.12 corner, with a bit of gear, to the roof starts off the same ledge. There's a 5.10 pitch that gets you to the ledge. Feb 7, 2007
