Erica Bigio cruising the crux. On a warm day this...

One of the best gear climbs in the grade. Good pro all the way to the anchors. Looks harder than it is.


Right side of the wall. It is an obvious right facing dihedral in an alcove that starts 20 feet above the trail at the base of the cliff. It looks harder than it is.


Standard rack with small cams up to 3 Camalot and two each of purple green and red. Chains at the top for lowering when done.

This is a excellent climb. Great gear, fun moves. Well worth the hike if you were just to do this route.

Nice to be able and spice up the day placing a bit of pro. Added bonus is the no hands rest and bolted anchors found up top. The route can easily be protected with 2" and less. Plenty of placements to choose from.

A rarity for Mount Lemmon: a true dihedral crack climb. Terrific stances to make placing pro a breeze. Very fun climbing.

Amazing route! The gear, stances and climbing are all great. When I started leading trad 2 months ago, I wanted to lead an all gear 5.10 on Mt Lemmon before the end of the year...so this was my first 5.10 trad lead - I finished it at 4:00 pm on Dec 31st. Nothing like waiting till the last minute, right?

One Pitch Wonder!!! Definatly worth the hike for this route. I would say there are too many no hands rests to be a .10. A solid 5.9 lead. Eveytime I climb it, I find differents ways to protect it. Lovely route.

nah, it's not 5.9. this is a solid lemmon 10a. best corner on the mountain, imho.

I think the crux move is no harder than 5.9. Great climb.

Phenomenal gear, sweet climbing. Really a classic in my opinion. I would give it a 10a rating.

Ive only been climbing on Lemmon for about 6 months but this is by far the most aesthetic route I've done. I love that the moves vary so much...from jams to crimps.

Great, Great!!! I followed this trad route and thought it was straight 5.10 in the center portion... It looks intimidating from the ground. I was able to do a lot of cool stemming. Can't wait to take a crack at leading it... David Sampson lead this one really well and got in good gear-some small stuff at the crux is what I remember. Fun moves.
