Starts in the left-side of a south-facing cave. Climb left out of cave to west face, then back right to south face (above cave) under a roof to a ledge, then up the crack about 3 more meters. Kind of like a backwards S rotated 90*, if that makes any sense.Use your anchor to TR the sweet roof just right of this climb. It's über fun, until you get to the BLANK face above, then it pretty much sucks....[more]   Browse More Classics in Arizona

mmmmm....oh yeah.... I know where that is. Took me a second to place it though. Sounds like you're keeping it secret eh ?

Good eye! I'm not really trying to keep it secret. If I were, I wouldn't have posted a pic. I was just curious if anybody would be able to recognize it. Thanks for not saying exactly where it is, though.

The approach is long and shitty, and some routes take gear, which is enough to keep most people away. Everybody's welcome to put up routes, though (if they recognize the rock ;). I certainly don't own it.

I was nearby one day and ran into a guy who had just been there. I think he said he had done some routes but I don't remember details. I scanned the crag (for overhangs of course) and calculated the total approach time. The prospects were not quite good enough to get me up there.

Started cleaning a "moderate line" here and had to bail in a Thunderstorm! I never did go back at the time, because I found some nice moderates at the "Chessman" the following week if I remember correctly? There are some good lines there though and it's nice to see that some other folk's that are willing to expend some energy to hike up there! It's not that far depending on who you talk too. Some folk's think a 5 Min. hike is too far.

Looks like the formations you see across the canyon on the hike into Munchkinland?
