That Pitch Leila 5.10- 6a 18 VI+ 18 E1 5a  Arizona : Central Arizona : ... : Catopia
Climb carefully down low with relatively poor gear to establish in the wide crack. Good gear in the back of the wide crack for the entire climb and make sure you save a couple small cams to protect the bulge up top. I think I used a 0.3 and a yellow alien up top. Protecting the wide crack will be a matter of personal preference. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Arizona

This is a marvelous addition to the Refuge with a broad selection of climbs on really excellent rock. The views down into the Power Line Rd. valley, as well in the Refuge are excellent and the approach is well marked and easy to find. Nice find indeed and great development effort led by Marcy and Geir. Was great to get out there a couple times already!!
