Description 

After months of effort, The Expansion Pack is officially open! This newly developed fin located up and left of The Draw Pile hosts six (surprisingly good) routes in the 5.10 to 5.13 range. The routes here are characterized by gentle overhangs with jugs that lead to technical sequences when the angle breaks above. While several of the lines have distinct cruxes, its the angle of the wall, and the ensuing pump that will catch you by surprise. With the addition of these lines, "Crags" is officially a destination with something for everyone.

Getting There 

The Expansion pack is the obvious fin up and left of the draw pile, as vizible from the road.
The approach heads up a small section of slab, then up hill before contorting across the slope to the main gully. I'm not kidding when I say the approach is a minute or less.

It's no alternative fact that this route is amazing. At the start of cleaning we just weren't sure what this section of wall would yield.When it was all over we were blown away to have found this gem in a sea of somewhat dubious rock. This route should not be missed!Begin below a ledge and climb three bolts worth of intro climbing. Standing on the ledge you can see how the wall arcs from slab to vertical to overhung. The difficulty follows this cadence...[more]   Browse More Classics in Arizona
