Description 

The crux is probably exiting a short crack that is located about 10 meters from the "block" - a precarious looking boulder about 12 meters off the ground - and, only one move. Beautiful line, wonderful moves, nice position, and excellent overhanging finish.

Location 

Jungleland sector

Protection 

Protects well. Standard rack. Cams up to #2 (a #3 camalot protects the last roof move)

Pretty good but not as much as Isiah and not quite as hard. Pretty interesting detached blocks in the roof. Solid enough I guess. #3 C4 didn't help in the roof, I just got a little higher and plugged a bomber #2.

I'm pretty sure I saw an alligator lizard on this climb yesterday. Different from the ones that are common around here (and fairly unusual for this area): reptilesofaz.org/Lizards-Subpa...

Been a long time since I have been on this pitch. It's hard to see from the base. Awesome finish.

Awesome route. Might be a good idea to bring extra finger sized pieces. Anyone know what the route is to the climbers left? It follows a nice hand crack that opens up to a short offwidth, it was very fun!
