One of the best moderate multi-pitch climbs on Lemmon. Thanks guys!!

I would bring a few more draws for the long second pitch or you will be down climbing to get them from the bolts below. If you break the last pitch in two you don't need as many draws.

Absolutely stellar climb.
I doubt though that the 5.9 first pitch is for the struggling 5.9 leader. Bit of a run out at the crux and if you miss, or blow the pro, well... it's going to hurt.

Second pitch is just a lot of fun with 3 (?) bulges and moderate stuff in between.

true words paul. you can, however, easily bail onto the 5.9 bolted route to the left of it if you get sketched.

as is the norm for mount lemmon, the crack looks terrible but it climbs a lot better than you would expect. cool jamming and stemming up high.
