Description

The Rock Climbing Arizona, Green, guide calls this a 2 pitch climb, but there's no reason to not do it in 1 pitch. Start under the obvious thin Cling of Pain (King Cling) Crack and climb up easy rock and follow a low angle ramp to the base of the corner. Ramp and start (5.5). Climb the thin dihedral up to the top. It has great stemming, a few hand jams, and a nice horizonal in the right wall. The rock in the crack is a bit crumbly, but not scary.

Location

Dihedral about 15 ft left of the Cling of Pain (King Cling) crack. Cliff is slightly behind the main cliff, all the way to the south end.

Protection

Mostly smaller cams(< 1") and nuts. Walk off to the north, or scramble over about 15 ft. and lower off the drop in shuts about Cling of Pain(King Cling) crack.

"First pitch" can easily be scrambled. Stellar dihedral with juicy hand jams near the top. Walk off down gully left of climb. Mar 2, 2016

Very fun climb. My cousin took me rock climbing a month and a half ago, this was the first time I had ever been climbing. The first time I did this, it took me half an hour to get to the top because of fear. I went up it yesterday in a minute and a half. It's a great warm up for Co-op or Cling of pain because of the 5.5 scrambling start and the 5.8 crack.

Trad anchor. Easily done in one pitch. Feb 27, 2013

Strange anchor to have MP right over climb. Lower off/rap hooks to climbers right, above king cling. Great view, and a good warmup for co-op Feb 26, 2013
