Comments: I'm changing my suggested rating back to my original. This route is 5.8 and not a bit harder. I was on it again a week ago and didn't notice any loose rock, but it is Queen Creek so things are always changing.

Comments: Huh. I did this back in 2008 and always felt it to be around 11c/d. I guess one man's 11 is another man's 12. . . Anyway, bummer about the ripped pieces. I thought the pieces were bomber, small, but pretty dang good placements with solid rock.

Comments: Bighorn sheep have not been available to hunt in that unit in quite sometime. Very illegal.

Comments: Just saw that Patrick is calling me out about the best 12d. I guess I should be honest and say one of the best 12d sport lines in AZ. The best 12d in my humble opinion is probably Shangri La. Do you have any other contenders?

Comments: Huh, looks like people have made a line to the left. The original line goes up the arete. Compare the two pictures.

Comments: A couple of seasons ago I put a cairn at the start of the trail. I put it up high enough to keep it from getting washed away in seasonal run off, but if it was heavy . . .? Basically head up a ramp like feature after ascending a small ridge. You do have to do a small scramble and then traverse near the top. Super easy if you find the right way. The trail is pretty defined, but typical with Arizona you might find the correct one on the way down rather than up on the first trip.

Comments: The entire pitch could go without bolts. The gear is good the whole way.

Comments: There is a trail. It is just faint and difficult to find on the way up on your first trip. We tried to put a lot of cairns on it a couple of years ago after the fire, but the heavy monsoon this year may have washed sections out or increased the underbrush in the spots that did not burn. It starts near the water pump piping.

Comments: I have done this route several times over the last 3-4 years and it doesn't seem any harder than 5.7 or 5.8. If you aren't good at slab technique the 1st pitch will feel harder, but that is because of your skill, not because the climb is difficult. It is a great route.
