Access Issue: Climbing restricted due to tourist safety Details


Start on the blocky ledge left of Obediah, where Duck Soup, George's Niche, and the Horn also start. Scramble up and right to the obvious seam in a left facing corner. Slot a nut and make a few hard technical moves before the seam widens and eases. Great moves, but more of a boulder problem really..


Just left of Obediah, just right of the Horn.


Gear to 2"

A one or two trick pony without doubt, but what tricks they are! Deffinately worthy to get a .12- lead under the belt. You will want some very small wires/cams/loweballs to lead it, but at least it’s a light rack. A good one to save for a strong onsight attempt. I don’t remember thinking it’s R but heads up as the gear is small.

Was this the first 5.12 in the Flagstaff area? May 3, 2008

It's rare to find a climb where the crux moves are protected by a 000 and #1 nut. Props to locals for keeping bolts off this thing (and the rest of the crag) and preserving this type of scarefest. Oct 3, 2016
