Access Issue: Stage 1 Fire Restrictions in Effect on Coconino and Kaibab National Forests Details


This is one of the most aesthetic lines in the Amphitheater when viewed from below. Start as for Rough Around the Edges, but where that route breaks off right, continue straight up. There is a #1 BD in a pod by the break before the steep climbing and the bolts begin.

The upper portion of the route is both burly and sequential, while offering several hard boulder problems sectioned by adequate shakes. Follow bolts through the stunning obtuse dihedral. If you can.

One can climb left from the Rough Around the Edges anchor to the Pressure Drop anchor via a two bolt traverse if you want to hang draws or set a TR.


Middle of the Main Amphitheater. Right of Death and Taxes, and shares start with Rough Around the Edges.


Single set of TCUs, cams to 2", wires, then somewhat spacey bolts on the 2nd half.
