4 out of 5 stars Phobos

Good route, really is. When you combine Phobos and Deimos, it makes for a great day of climbing. With Kevin from Las Vegas, I led all the pitches. The first pitch was cool and physical with a bit of stemming and plenty of jams. The second pitch was jam city. The third pitch direct is the way to go, one well protected quick move to the top. The original climb around makes no sense. Good stuff.

Guess I missed that jug - hung under the first roof. The cracks down there are a bit slick - above they are perfect!

4 out of 5 stars enjoyable route

We used this route to get to the top of Blues Riff and rap in to the base of the second pitch of that route. In terms of climbing quality, Phobos pales in comparison to BR, but is still a fun outing.
