DescriptionOne of the best handcrack trainers in Phoenix (albeit a short one).
Start is a splitter that leans slightly right and varies from tight hands to big hands (but often pinches down or changes size quickly - so hand size does not really affect the rating). 40'
Can continue for a 'second' pitch by stepping right from the gully on top to another nice vertical crack. 50'
LocationRight-angling handcrack (mostly vertical). Start off large slanting boulder on the east side between the north & south peaks. (near base of second rappel from the top).
Obvious chimney to its left and a gully to the right.
Its possible to squirm off right after the first 35' or continue up 'second pitch' to Notch area; From Notch, walk to climbers right and down to rappel anchors in the gully (single rope rap).
