This is a magical glen that seems to get little to no traffic and has a lot of potential for new route development. Will hope to put up some of the ones I've scoped soon. For now, I post the two established climbs -- "Pussy Whipper" and "Kitties Dihedral" -- and some photos. It should, realistically, be within the "Glitter Box" area, but it's easiest to have it listed as a new area within Lower Devils.

Getting There 

Walk north along the base of the Glitter Box climbs, Damsels in Distress, Adios Larry, Sublime Line and then head up and around the buttress into the Summer Assault nook. From there walk into the enchanted glen where Trickle and Resin is, climb that first pitch and step right and into the Lion's Den.

Or, you could completely avoid crack climbing, clip the bolts and climb the face the whole way, stemming into the dihedral. So, I guess you can call this two climbs in one -- do...[more]   Browse More Classics in Arizona
