Description

short but full value, fun on good rock.

Location

A 3 minute stroll from the atlantis parking area on the old road. Hang 10 is the 4th route you will come to, just 100 feet past Rack of ribs. Start just below beginning of a sharp arete. Stand up and grab the arete and reach left to clip first bolt. Getting to the 2nd bolt is the crux. After crux you can wedge your knee under the mini-roof and enjoy the unlikely no hands rest, shake out your digits (Hang 10, get it :() and finish on easier rock.

Description should read that this is the 4th route one encounters on the old road. Apr 23, 2010

This climb formed from an old road cut proves that - if you use enough dynamite - there is some stellar rock to be found at Queen Creek.

Very sequential and technical climbing down low leads to a roof and an exciting move above the third bolt. Unlike the beta given above (the FAist's?) we worked more from the left to the center without ever using the arete in gaining the second bolt, so perhaps the grade changes that way. To me, our way seemed the natural path, but we are all free to contrive our own journey.

I found this climb to be very beta intensive, and, once mastered, the moves to be not that strenuous. The choss free rock and laser cut features (thanks again to explosive chipping) are a fun diversion to the area, and, given the 5 minute approach time, certainly worth visiting. May 7, 2010

Cool route over all. The knee bar was awesome and will help you get over the small lip with ease. Feb 17, 2011

I love this route. Although it is short I found it to be fairly sustainted. Its been about a year since I've climbed it but I remember the upper section to be more difficult then below the roof. Feb 14, 2012
