This is the (original) sit-start variation to Cholla Magnet Direct (V1 PG13). Start right off of the pads. A nice right hand with a slightly not-so-good left hand layback leads to more layback moves in solid, big vertical-running pockets until the route meets up with the line that Cholla Magnet Direct finishes on. A better, and harder variation to a route on a less than oft visited nice face in Tucson Mountain Park.


Go over Gate's pass traveling west/southwest out of downtown Tucson. You'll drive by the main parking area for Gate's Pass proper and see a parking area farther down the road on the left. The boulder face is the most shaded looking boulder hallway down the slope towards the pass itself. You should pass through a few drainages (and a few cholla fields) before making your way to the sandy base of the boulder face.


1-2 Pads and a brush to clean up a little.
