[We are doing this outing on Saturday with one group, and on Sunday with another]
This climb is on Rappel Rock in the Summit Crags area of Mt Lemmon near Tucson. It is very close to the top of the mountain, elevation is around 8500' so temps are reasonable. It's a full day and will require an early start so staying in the area the night before is recommended (camping is available).
Standard Route - 5 or 6 pitches - 5.7 - 450'
The first pitch is about a 5.6 with some face at the beginning followed by a 4-6" crack.
The second pitch has a bit of everything, it's a solid 5.7.
The rest of it a fun sea of chicken heads, it varies from class 4 to low 5.
Details on where and when to meet will be sent to the participants. Jason Garvan is acting outing leader. The is an official AMC outing.
