A Mt. Lemmon trad climbing gem.
Bomber gear, and an awkward crux
On Up the Creek Crag
A new formation 150 yards up stream from from the Control Tower.
Obvious line up a black streak through a small roof on the right side of the formation.
Rack of cams to 3 inches and some small tcu's, stoppers.
Greg at the crux. Beta please.

Cool route with great pro. An interesting crux and a great finish. It can be wet if it has just rained. The route is on the right side of the formation and climbs just left of the big roof.

For a great alternate start I suggest climbing the short, splitter finger crack just right of the initial corner. It makes for some awesome locks right off the bat, and since you get a good rest after the grade doesn't change. The rest of the climb is very engaging. One of the better gear routes I've done on this mountain.

I had a hell of a time with the crux on this route...never did figure it out. Would one of you guys send me your beta please? I found it pretty stout for a 10, but I'm sure I just screwed it up.
