Lots of interesting climbing on this cerebral clim...
Long route. Leave your gear near the top as you can't lower off. Looks easier than it is and the first moves are a tad reachy. This long and winding route is fun because it climbs features. Good pro where you need it. Be sure and bring a number of shoulder length slings.
On the east face of the Branching Out Crag. Drop down the right side from the trail and go right when you reach the ramp leading to the saddle between this cliff and the Mojo Wall. When you get down to the start Prowler and Tree Top Flyer Look up and left about 25 feet for a single bolt.
Two bolts one at the start and one up high and a standard rack

The name comes from the first ascensionist who took the climb way too lightly and left the ground with nothing but a few cams and no long slings. The resulting epic was somewhat amusing for us onlookers, not so much for Eric.
Rule number 1: Engage brain before you tie in and leave the ground.

Led this today with a fully engaged brain, a full rack of cams and stoppers. With gear,(doh!) it protects well and is a great trad line for Mt. Lemmon.
More like solid 5.10 with multiple bits of business, which all require a different technique to surmount. Engaging from top to bottom.
