Description

Start as Quivering Beast, but instead of moving up at the first set jugs on the face, keep climbing the overhang further left. Move to a sloping ledge around the corner, then into a difficult section of incredible climbing involving pockets, arete slapping and technical heel hooking. Super classic for the area.

Location

Start as Quivering Beast, traverses under roof and tops out above the cave, just left of an arete.

Cool Problem. More of and enduro problem really. Big holds with good movement to a challenging crux. If anyone has better beta for the move to the last pinch on the arete, that would be great. I was tossing with my left hand from the pocket pinch to the last pinch one the arete. Trying to hold the swing was tough so.... Nov 29, 2009

This problem has been re-sent, and is an absolute classic. Bomber rock (now that it has cleaned up a bit) and fantastic movement through 20 feet of roof. This problem would be a classic in Hueco, and is certainly one of the best in Tucson. Nov 17, 2009
My fat a$$ broke another hold off. One of the jugs in the beginning is gone. So, I suppose, that's my effort to keep the climbing more in the grade. Won't change much though, but we'll see what I pull off next time. Nov 11, 2009

this climb has the full package: great variety in holds, movement, and aesthetics. where else in SOAZ can you find 25 feet of roof climbing? this is definitely worth getting on, to say the least. chris and joe put together a nice project in this one! Nov 6, 2009

Strange how the loss of a jug near the end of a problem can make it climb even better, but it did. Before it was just one tough move at the end of a long stretch of jugs in a roof, now it's a pretty burly SERIES of moves. A good problem in any area; this feels like one of the very best in Southern Arizona. Nov 5, 2009

A key cobble used in the crux section of this climb came off today (the big jug Chris is heel hooking in the photos). The problem is harder now, but probably even a little better. An open project once again. Nov 5, 2009

Joe, excellent work on putting it all together so quickly, and I love the name.

This will be high in the running for the best line in the whole place. Nov 3, 2009
