I've climbed this twice in the last week. IMO one of the better 5.10 sport routes on the Lemmon. A must do, worth the walk for this climb alone.

Really good climb with good rock, especially considering it's at Hairpin. Pretty sustained hard 10 at least, could even be 11-, but since I couldn't feel my fingers after the first few moves, it's hard to tell.

In the winter, it's probably better to get a late start and let the rock warm up a bit. Even being in the shade all day, it eventually does start thawing out.

Great climb. Pretty sustained. Not many good rests to recover on. Gotta keep moving. Pretty stiff for a 10d. Well bolted so don't be afraid to hop on and give it a go. Mussy hooks at anchors.

Very nice juggy 5.10 with lots of shake out rests on jugs and good foot holds so you can eyeball the next sequence. Well bolted, safe, pure fun sport climbing. A couple of hard moves make it 5.10+ but I don't believe it clocks in at any 5.11 range. Moves into the sun about 3 pm.
One comment on the description - it is the Second bolted route left of the big crack, not the third

If sport climbing is your bag, this is the 5.10 on lemmon.
