A tall pointed boulder with possible routes on all sides. Each side varies wildly in style. the West side (road side) is very blank and steep but may yield difficult compression problems. The South side is an interesting and lightly featured slab. On the East side there is an interesting scoop feature that could have another problem or two relating to it. The North side of the boulder is by far the most interesting, containing a slightly overhanging rippled (almost featureless) wall of sloping crimps (possible extremely difficult sloper problems).

Getting There 

Head towards the east side of the road from the dirt parking lot. The Alignment Boulder is a pointy peak that pokes out from the side of a small hill. It should align your path to the boulders.

On the East side of the Alignment Boulder, locate a juggy scoop and a small pocket high above it. Pull onto the scoop and use high feet with strange body tension to reach the holds above. I recommend inspecting the top out from above, as it is very sloping and the holds are illusive, but all there....[more]   Browse More Classics in Arizona
