Overview
Deimos is the steeper and stouter cousin of Phobos. It turns most people away who are just trying to reach the bottom of the climb, which is located on a blocky terrace after a 5.8 chimney boulder problem. The intimidating inverted V-slot roof on the first pitch is followed by wide hand, fist, and offwidth climbing on a leaning ramp. Deimos is one of the few climbs in Tuolumne where a prior introduction to burly Valley climbs is a good idea.
