Pretty neat spire thingy out amongst gajillions of cacti....one of which bit me. Approach wasn't bad, weather was perfect, climb was relatively fun but the descent after the spider rappel was a pain in the ass with climbing shoes on!
Total t-shirt and shorts day while climbing this nice backcountry crag with Debbi. We decided to get on the crag classic 'Don't Bug Me' (one tough 5.6!). Enjoyed all of the pitches (with emphasis on pitch #3) of this route. Nothing better than some ice cold beers, my girl, the Arizona sunset and a good backcountry route. Bliss! Great way to start the New Year!
