DescriptionThe route in question. 3 sections of varied climbing: a steep blocky section leading to a little roof....a slab (!).... a sublime stem/lieback dihedral.
The blocky section is pretty fun now that I've trundled and reinforced. The slab has the best slab crux I've ever done (and I've been climbing over 1/3 of a century). The dihedral is amazing...I wish it went on for another 50 feet. One of the most unusual lines in So. Az.
The technical crux is the transition from roof to slab. But the rest of the climb will give you plenty more opportunity to fail, espec the top of the dihedral.
The bottom of this line was death blocks and dense choss when I found it. Take that into consideration if you feel the need to judge.
I originally tried to rate this 12a, but Josie, Joe and Brian pummeled me.
