You're not on dead pool. dead pool is around the corner to your right. Look closely for the two bolts around the corner. I'm not sure of the name of the route that you are on.

The sketchy ones...

It's just a highball boulder problem. V0-, I think.

5 out of 5 stars Yes, I believe so. They slammed a bolt in so that huge hold wouldn't pop off.

Note to Climbingpride. You're comments are uninformed. This climb is called Loafer's Choice. It is in both Phoenix Rock editions. Originally lead with two bolts at 5.10a R but recently retrobolted. The climb to the right is called Dead Meat. A bolt was added to this climb as well. There are no quarter inch bolts on this climb or any of the other "popular" climbs at Pinnacle Peak. Most of the bad bolts at Pinnacle Peak have been replaced prior to the opening of the park and many bolts have been added to existing routes.

I adjusted the brightness and contrast. Otherwise photo is undoctored.

I like the contrast on this one. It deserves better than a 7.83.

Did you climb the second pitch?

I'm on a rope. Shelley is down below and out of sight. Original belay position is in shaded area but there is a better spot to belay on a ledge about 20' down.

5 out of 5 stars It's easier to lead this route than toprope it. It's easy to make it to the top of the route. It's just hard to do it cleanly. Use a heel toe cam at the crux to make it easier. I did not get on this route the last time I was out here because it was a week after I had done the Mace and my foot still hurt.(:

4 out of 5 stars That thing is fun. Josh, your belayer should be more attentive and not taking pictures.

4 out of 5 stars I've rapped off that thing three times. Maybe we should install some bolts like those at the top of Lost Nuts.

4 out of 5 stars Josh, I hope your belayer isn't the one taking photos. That would be unsafe.

4 out of 5 stars Hey Daniel, I didn't think people still used big bros anymore. Those things look about 15 years old.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars You should always avoid climbs that require big gear, especially big bros.

Yes, Phoenix Rock II. A finely written and researched guide. If you don't own a copy, you should go purchase one. :)

I thought this route had the most enjoyable moves of the climbs I did out there. Fun! It goes at 5.10+ or 5.11-

View this Photo
I especially liked the 5.9+ moss top out. I blew the onsight because of dirt on those crimps pictured. Red pointed it on my next try. It goes at 5.11.

4 out of 5 stars Tons of great rock. It seems that GM has fallen out of favor with todays climbers. I'm looking forward to check out this route.

4 out of 5 stars I've been eyeing that climb. It looks like my style.

Yes, it is only 30% of the actual height that I like.

5 out of 5 stars Is the ghoul wearing socks when he climbs? How lame.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Someone added a bolt to the beginning of this route. Comparing it to the other face climbs such as "For Pete, Thanks" and "Waterstreak Delight", I would call this route 5.8+ or 5.9.

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars I hope that photographer is paying close attention to his belay duties.

4 out of 5 stars Last time I did this route there was a dead bird and a good #2 camalot placement about where that water streak is located. Good angle for this shot. It appears as if you are almost level with the climber.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Isn't that Hard Drivin' on the right side, below the pillar on the leaning rock? The first pitch is a good first lead for the 5.9 leader.

Right above where that fixed tri-cam used to be.

I agree.

5 out of 5 stars I guess no one else sees the humor of this photo.

4 out of 5 stars A little history... Originally put up by John Ficker and others in 1979 with two bolts. Two additional bolts miraculously sprouted sometime in the 21st Century. I hope that others do not forget the accomplishments of these "early" climbers.

4 out of 5 stars Hard Drivin' is beckoning.

3 out of 5 stars I wouldn't call Beardsley a "hooker with scabs around her mouth". Maybe an unfortunate woman that has been beaten repeatedly for being in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Better luck next time on your quest for granite.

I agree with Josh. The Tower is a classic.

4 out of 5 stars What if the crack is unprotectable?
I believe the First Ascentionist lead this thing thinking that it had already been done. Once he got above the first bolt, he realized he had to run it out. A hair raising proposition!
Perhaps, I'll go back and lead it in that style.

4 out of 5 stars You should have cropped that funny looking black circle at the bottom. This climb has good rock, especially the 5.10 traverse into the steep part.

4 out of 5 stars I've been to Pinnacle Peak dozens of times since it reopened and have not seen anybody leading Fear of Flying, Powder Puff Direct, Lessons in Discipline, Sidewinder, Shalaylay Direct, or Never Never Land. And these are supposed to be the best routes Phoenix offers...

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars It took me two tries and a 30' whipper on FOF to get a clean lead and only one try on Sidewinder to get a clean lead.

5 out of 5 stars I'm with sbclimber on this one. Whoever "fixed" that piece didn't intend to do it. Every inch of crack above and below that piece could have been protected with any number of pieces. Removing that old piece of sh*t with the rotting sling only makes the climb better.
