A small area with a few climbs, both sport and trad. Very rarely visited, as evidenced by the very overgrown vegetation on both the approach and around the bases of the climbs. Littleland is the farthest up the hill and has a distinctive attached spire with a cool plate feature prominent. Dr. Death is closer to the road and off to the right as facing uphill on the approach. This is near to the Paradox Rock area.

Getting There 

Heading up the hill toward Windy Point, one can see the Pharaoh & Ripple Wall up the hill to the right. Past this, there is a small (1 or 2 car sized) unpaved pullout between two drainage ditches. Park here.

From the car, choose which drainage ditch to follow (the uproad one is cleaner and goes somewhat directly towards Littleland, while the downroad drainage is more overgrown but heads toward Dr. Death). Follow the drainage you choose to the crag of your choice. Expect a good bit of manzanita whacking either way. Time to the backside of Littleland is roughly 15-20 minutes.

The start may be the hardest move on the route, especially if you are short. Reach (or jump?) to the obvious, high starting rail and start up the vertical face. A few moves on the face lead to the beautiful arete. Follow this past several bolts to the 2 cold shut anchor below the lip.The arete contains some of the most technical climbing I've ever done. There are several heel hooks and even a knee scum possible. Expect to use both sides of the arete. The line would merit more stars if it w...[more]   Browse More Classics in Arizona
