Starting the techy crux of Grape Nut. Photo by Sor...


Grape Nut ascends the center of the ominous red face of Overlooked Pinnacle. Start off with fairly easy climbing that gains steadily in difficulty through the first three bolts until a few small holds and a cool formed pinch are encountered. Clip bolt 4 and start the crux, which involves some very subtle body positioning. Pull through the the next bolt, cop a quick shake and get ready for the second half of the crux, which is more physical but maintains a high demand for technique. This continues through the next couple of bolts to a slap to a jug where the route joins Catalina 5.11+ to the chains past a couple more bolts on easier terrain.

This route is all about body positioning and has a plethora of holds that aren't typical for Mount Lemmon like pinches and slopers. Despite the apparent blankness of the face, this route depends on very few small crimps.


Climbs the center of the obvious, red face on the side of the formation that faces towards Hunchback Pinnacle. One route left of Catalina 5.11+.


9 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor with chains.
