The proudest feature at the Draw - a massive double roof with half a dozen problems. Four of them start in the same spot at the back of the lower roof and follow complex, sustained lines to distinct headwall finishes. The upper roof has a single problem through a funky seam. The Girl From Ipanema is the linkup of the two roofs.

Getting There 

Follow the main trail for about 20 minutes, well past Anorexic and Monster, until you see the Mars Roof on the right. You'll know if you pass it because the draw flattens out and there are no more boulders.

Aiming for the obvious tufa pinch on the headwall, navigate the complex of pockets to an undercling and sloper at the lip. "Answer the phone" and square up for a heartbreaker throw to victory....[more]   Browse More Classics in Arizona
