Climb thin but positive edges past 3 bolts and horizontal crack. Well protected.


Farthest left route in nit nat area left of Peaches and cream


3 bolts + medium cam for horizontal. 2 bolt anchor. Currently one of the bolts for the anchor is missing a hanger but can be backed up with gear. Walk off or rap from nit nat chains

Thin face climb with cratering potential near the second and third bolts. Can hike around to anchors to set up top rope very easily, however.

Best to think of a lot of Phoenix granite routes as "old school", with all that implies. I can remember when 5.9 was a pretty proud grade around here (and it still is on some climbs).
