The proudest feature at the Draw - a massive double roof with about half a dozen problems. Four start in the same spot at the back of the lower roof and tackle four separate lines to amazing headwall finishes. The linkup of the two roofs is one of the coolest endurance problems in town.

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.

Bump right on more underclings to a heartbreaker throw for victory holds and an easy topout....[more]   Browse More Classics in Arizona
