Wildy varied and unique climbing up great stone with huge exposure make this the best hard route at The Dry and possibly one of the best in the Tucson area. Climb some fun rock down low up to a miniature ships prow. Brave the dynamic and stormy seas above to a no hands rest at the low ledge. Prepare yourself physically and mentally and traverse out over the brink through big moves and bullet stone. Meander through technical terrain until a thorny rose move spits you into the powerful crux. Chalk up (if you can) and battle your way through a brutal sidepull slap sequence that is one of the coolest boulder problems I've done on a rope. Gather yourself and re-commit: a techy face problem culminating in a desperate dyno brings you to a good jug. Contemplate your sweaty palms and utter solitude before casting off to the chains.

Nope, I don't even need to look at them I can just tell that they are one star from the post on MP.com. Once again, it looks like I may have inadvertently clicked on the star quality thingy on the page. Oct 18, 2013
