Comments: Did anyone happen to find a 1/2 set of nuts on an oval biner there in the last few days? Would have left them on Sunday (2/5). I think they may be near by Phlegm of Fury or possibly by Inz and Outz. Maybe even by the base camp area near Natural Enhancement.


I'd love to get them back and willing to provide beer!

Comments: I always have a great time on this one. A great warm up since there are plenty of rests between harder moves. The stemming up top is out of this world fun!

Comments: This route is highly underrated. Just plain fun splitter action!

2x 1C3-#2C4, 3x .75-1, 1x 3-4 seemed nice for an onsight rack

Comments: Not sure why the description mentions passing 3 bolts, this is a 100% gear route. Can use the Dark Passage anchor up top to TR (with a directional).

Singles to #5 if this is your limit, however I didn't use anything larger than a #3 as the crack pinches down in the back semi-frequently.

Comments: Starting with P1 of Deep Throat is a much more enjoyable way to do this and keep it 5.4 for both pitches. A star for each pitch!

Comments: TR'd this the other day. Awesome line! Definitely steeper than many of the routes here and super fun movement!

Spent lots of time cleaning off the loose flakes in the lower section. Gear is small here, but the climbing is pretty easy. A few more sessions and hopefully any questionable rock will be gone. The upper section is steep! Powerful laybacking with poor feet. Great rock though with a hero finish!

Comments: This and angel's on my mind next door felt really soft for Pinnacle Peak. Still packs in some fun for how short it is.

Comments: Oak Flat Campground is about 5 mins east of the Pond. Just keep going towards Globe on the US-60 and there will be a sign and a turnoff on the right.

Comments: Finishing on Vanishing Point is definitely better, but I think the original line goes roughly straight up from the end of the finger crack, past a few more bolts.

Comments: Stars for the 2nd pitch handcrack, which is great. Definitely favors larger hands (3's).

Comments: Really, really fun route! Crux seemed to be down low, but plenty of solid moves after.

2 glue ins on the top are for a more comfy belay if bringing your partner up. The larger ones on the edge are for the rap. Can rap straight to ground with a 70m (long, tie knots!) by heading straight back over the pitch 1 belay. If you have a 60m you will still hit the P1 anchors.

Comments: Classic line! Pitch 1 easy with maybe 1 move of 5.3 to 2 new bolts on a ledge. After that the climbing is awesome from start to finish with a burly crux about mid-way. You'd be crazy to not finish on the 2 bolt direct line. That's some really fun climbing to top it off!

Onsight rack: 1x .4-3 | 2x .5-2 | 4 slings | 4 quick-draws (save 2 for the bolts at the end).

2 glue in bolts on top of the sub summit.

FYI, you can rap from the bigger glue ins at... more >>

Comments: What a fun route! Great moves the whole way. The crux is tricky, but only a couple of moves long. Trust that friction!

Easy to continue on to the anchors for Typhoon to get a TR on that one.

Comments: For only 60' long, this thing is super fun! Classic in the 5.8 range.

Single set from .2-.75 worked for me.

Comments: This things was really hard from bottom to top! Some really fun moves in the middle, but mostly just painful on the toes and tips. A good TR after leading either Hades or Name It, but I don't have a lot of confidence in the 2 leeper bolts in the middle for the lead burn.

Comments: I'd recommend having a purple C3 for the last 12' to the first bolt. The climbing around the 2nd bolt was definitely hard!

Comments: Does anyone have any info on this left leaning tips crack? I didn't find anything in PHX Rock II or the MK foldout. I would think it has been done since it's such a clean cut crack.

I TR'd it and it felt hard(.11+?) with lots of exfoliation of footholds. Super Fun though.

Comments: This rig was harder than it looked for the ground. I TR'd it and still couldn't do a handful of the moves! Especially down low in the flare..

Would be a rad lead! The upper seam took bomber 00C3's.

Comments: A good free solo. The initial jamming was really easy, but still fun. Also, the move past the bolt had some nice exposure on the other side.

A great line if you wanted to TR some of the other routes(Death Watch, Lost Nuts, D&D, etc.)

Comments: This is a must do if in the area. Agreed that it felt soft for PP. Getting to the 1st bolt is very easy, but a fall before clipping it would suck.

Comments: Really great climb! Did this after Crimson Chrysalis for a nice, moderate day of about 2000' of climbing.

A few notes:

-We linked 1/2 and 3/4 with no issues with an 80m, which made for 2 awesomely fun, 250ish foot pitches and skipped the pitch 3 hanging belay.
-Both my partner and I thought it was way more fun than CC.
-Rack suggestions above were good, even for linking, just add a few extra slings to do so.
-Guidebook P5 was surprisingly awesome! From the description above I didn't think ... more >>

Comments: Got on it the other day. First pitch had some so-so rock. The spicy section just above the ledge around the v-slot took a .3 well...which I whipped on when a foothold blew, so it's good, but a bit nerve racking since you'd ledge out if it didn't. The upper section takes more smallish gear and you are pulling on hollow sounding stuff that I don't know that I'd want to fall on. Just a little Earn-Your-Burn. Once you hit the 2nd pitch though the quality is great(and that's why you came here an... more >>
