The crux is the first 10 feet but it stays strenuous and has a tricky finish.


This route uses the 5.11+ start to Armed Robbery but stays right eventually sharing the big ledge above the crux on Sentenced to Hang but busting left for a tricky sequential finish.

Totally agree. This is a great pitch that is somehow almost an afterthought on this wall. In particular, I loved the compression moves up high which are pretty rare for mt lemmon Aug 2, 2017

This pitch is awesome! Steep, positive, bouldery. I think it is sustained for the grade. Stays on you for the most part till the jug. Apr 24, 2017
Thanks Eric, I did find the list on the location page. Aug 21, 2009
Hey RCM, read the location section again and the following will help you understand. Read the Armed Robbery description too. Originally the start of climb spree was an alternate start to Armed Robbery. We then decided to take it up and right and call it climb spree. You do get to the same big ledge that is on Sentenced... but then bust left and up. Sounds like you were on it. Aug 10, 2009
Can someone clarify the start to Climb Spree? We were starting on a water polished ledge in the middle of the wall to the right of Armed Robbery's start (here is says you share the start with Armed Robbery). Of course, since there are new routes there, perhaps we weren't on Climb Spree? It had a really hard start, eventually met up with Sentenced to Hang(?) about 2 thirds of the way up the wall and finished on the bolts with rings that are the only ones facing left on the wall.

Alternatively, maybe someone can list the routes left to right or right to left on that wall since there are so many new ones not in the guide? I don't see them listed in any order here.

Thanks! Aug 10, 2009

Of the climbs on the wall I've done this is the second most fun. A great addition. If only I didn't boulder (no endurance) so much maybe I would have redpointed it yesterday. Will be back next week. Thanks again for the great routes. Apr 8, 2007
