Comments: To clarify, since everything I've seen online is a bit vague about directions: there are a couple sets of pullouts on Redington Rd before the pass. The first one has a decent-sized lot off to the left and a small pullout to the right. Hiking down here will take you to the lower falls, which is a very beautiful area, but you'll be disappointed to find there isn't much bouldering. Continue to the next, larger, usually busier set of pullou... more >>

Comments: Sorry, it's been about seven years since I got on this boulder, but I think i wrote that because you need some direction to know where to go - there's a lot happening on that face. Hence the "sort of."

Comments: Hi y'all. When originally posted I just took the V7 grade and skirt start from the e-guide. I agree it is more like V5-6, and I prefer to start at the hueco and avoid the skirt altogether. It doesn't particularly matter as the hardest moves are just before the lip anyway. Have fun.

Comments: Oh good, it's not just me. I always just figured I sucked and/or was doing it wrong.

Comments: jbak, what is the "proper" ending for this problem? Pulling left into the crack is awkward, but straight up is cryptic. What would BM do?

Comments: hey Robin, thanks for that, I was just out here yesterday and remembered how nice this area is. one of the warmer fall/winter spots in the canyon (though it still doesn't really get much sun.) IMO most of the lines are more in the v2-v4 range and have some of the most technical topouts in the canyon.

Comments: feels more like sustained v3/5.11. FWIW the big whip has gone down with minimal damage :)

Comments: "Lifestyles" is on the opposite side of the boulder, not sure why this photo is posted here.

Comments: Slaton, sounds like you were on the problem to the right of Puss Gut. It has no name that I'm aware of.

Comments: Jeremy, I have also been chased down by the camp host for "speeding." That was about three years ago. I doubt they are trying to deter climbers specifically because that parking is also used for the popular Sandy's Canyon hike. I'm not sure why they're so hostile about it.
They're probably just bored. It's probably best to just humor the hosts and take it slow through the campground.

Comments: For the record, most people start at the fingerlocks in the crack. The SDS adds a couple moves but no real difficulty.

Comments: The website is dead, but you can still get the e-guide in CDR format from Vertical Relief. This area is included in A Cheap Way to Fly and I have seen a fold-up topo as well, check with VR or other AZ climbing shops to find them.

Comments: A big block came off the top section of this problem in the past year or so, leaving a bucket where there were once slopers. Difficulty and quality have been reduced.

The sit start is V1+

Comments: It is possible to top this out, though a brush and/or broom is highly advised. The traditional ending is to drop from the jug left of the tree.

The difficulty of this traverse seems dependent upon whether certain key holds are coated in slimy moss.

Comments: The problem around the corner (sidepull features, high crux and bad landing) is V5-ish and might be the one listed as Block Roof in Toula's guide, I really don't know. There are definitely many variations and eliminates on this boulder.

That volcano thing has got to be one of the coolest features anywhere.

Comments: Habitat stamp is no longer required to climb at the 420s or any other SWAs in the canyon. Hooray!
