|I believe that this pitch can be TR'd if you setup a creative belay from the end of P2 of The Standard Route.|

|brother braxton is right, you can (and should) toprope this pitch if you set up a creative belay from the top of the standard route pitch 2. this is a must do if you like crack climbing, because splitter cracks are so rare in tucson.|

|This route made me realize, once again, that 5.9 is HARD. One of the best 5.9's I've done on Lemmon. Top was scary because I went left instead of right. I highly recommend this pitch!|

|The topo in SQII is the same as the one John Steiger used in the original guidebook. I guess I could use some arrows and point out where the route goes and have a better description and a photo so that people have less trouble getting on it. Thanks for the input this all helps.|

A #4 would be nice to have at the top of wide crack before the final unprotected moves up and right.
Unless there's an alternate easier finish, there's a typo in the guidebook as the whole pitch is rated 5.9 but the final traverse right is shown as 9+.
Sling everything long for the first 5.6 part and figure out some kind of directional at the blocks below the finger crack.
The pictures Joe posted are useful for finding the thing. From the Pine Tree ledge, trend slightly left up the low-angle right-facing corner w the wide cracks at the top, then hard left at the blocks.
