john and i didn't decide where we were going until cordes junction
opted for the overlook
my first time there, and john's third
turned out to be an excellent choice :)
very short approach, beautiful setting, perfect weather
my only concern was connecting the climbs below to the anchor points above without spending too much time on it
got to work on our anchor building skills, slinging a tree and a boulder or two boulders
picked three of the easiest routes, as the climbing here is a little different than our usual
nice basalt rock, featuring lots of cracks, lie back, jams, overhangs, stemming and some face
easy on the hands
did all three routes twice each, just to get more climbing out of the anchor-building
i loved the place, and there is plenty more to entertain us for several more trips
only two other parties at the crag
good choice, john
you had a good day up there : app :
hit flagstaff for bun huggers afterwards
couldn't ask for a nicer day
