Description 

This is a great boulder with a large grade range and many classics, kinda by itself farther up the hill from the main area. Worth the added walk though, these are not to be missed.

Getting There

Super classic line, the dabbiness of it detracts from the crux.

Climb straight out the roof on jug flakes leading to smaller holds but instead of topping out to the right, swerve left and do interesting crux moves through edges and crimps until you reach a large flat edge. From here make a few long but easier moves straight up out the ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Arizona
