Comments: This is a great pitch of climbing: interesting and varied movement, great position, and enough spice to make it memorable. The move over to the first bolt can be protected by a hand-sized piece, although you'll want to extend it with at least a double length, to avoid drag higher up. The bolts have some healthy spacing between them, but nothing extreme. That being said, the bolts aren't in great condition. Probably best not to whip onto any of them...

Comments: Just as good as the wizard, imo. Also harder: the crux is harder and there's two almost no hands rests on the wizard. Upper section is pure fun: big moves between big holds.

Comments: Just for clarification: does Breaking Away share the first four original bolts of Pucker Up, or the first four bolts that are currently installed on Pucker Up, and do Breaking Away and Riddle of Steel share any bolts?

Comments: Booted from the Galley is a great line, and without a question a worthy contribution to one of Southern AZ's best crags. Huge thanks to Andy and friends for polishing this gem!

As Andy mentioned, the line can be done on mostly gear, skipping the first three (perhaps also fourth?) bolts as well as the bolt at the end of the crux dihedral. However, for the first three bolts, care will need to be taken to find the best placements. I personally tested the gear in the crux dihedr... more >>

Comments: Finally got on this thing today. The rock that you climb on is actually really good quality, but the rock that your pro goes in is (mostly) pretty questionable. I wasn't really planning on leading it today, but decided to give it a go after Crow's Nest. Anyways, I only had some nuts/hexes and three microcams with me. As such, it's pretty spicy. Having some more cams (micro and finger/tight hand sizes) would have taken some of the sting ... more >>

Comments: Great climb! I can't believe it's taken me this long to get on it. I linked all three pitches, and rope drag wasn't an issue at all. Extend long and try not to place directly beneath the roofs.
