You've done R-4, Space Cowboy, and Stoner Boner and you're looking for another classic Mt Lemmon "moderate" on gear. This may be your climb. From the ground doesn't look like much. Great rock, long pitch, good pro, bit heady, little bit sandbagged. Just a little.


When you reach the base of the Pharaoh, head left till you reach the left side of the main wall. Continue up and left a bit to a short clean left facing corner. The right side overhangs a bit. There are two bolts at the summit. Easy down climb on the back side. A sixty won't get your down. You might be able to get down with a 70. Might.


Standard rack.

I recently did something on the left side of the Pharaoh, but I'm not sure it was this. The terrain on the left side of this cliff is complicated. Does anyone have a picture of this route?
