Boating upstream from McHood Park, the rock climbs on your right side will be listed here in the West Side. The first outstanding climb - Yeah Buddy - is on the right side. Not a great warm up, but by the time you get back there at the end of the day you'll be too spent from cranking, paddling and swimming all day to have the motivation for it. Get on it now if it's on you're list. Other West Side classics further upstream and not to be missed are Full Value, Bear Claw, and Last Day of Summer.

Slop Slope Slap Arete 5.12d 7c 28 IX 28 E6 6b  Arizona : Northern Arizona : ... : DWS West Side
Staying on the arete the whole way will bring you ten ft up to your first very small left hand crimp. You must use this and a smear to throw to the slope on the arete and keep body tension as you stick and bump up every move on this climb start to finish gets progressively harder with the top out being the crux. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Arizona
