Just above the crux; Emily about to give...
This route starts at a low angle ramp just left of the middle of Wind Wall. Face climb past three bolts to a crack in a groove. The crux is a tricky sequence right around the third bolt.
There are 5 bolts on this route and a light rack will suffice to protect the rest. I bring a #3 camalot for a spot just above the third bolt a few small cams and a set of nuts. Chain anchors at the top.

At the grade, one of the best routes at Mt Lemmon.

Great route. I only found 4 bolts and didn't place anything larger than a .75 however.

Absolutely outstanding for the grade - very sustained, varied movies, nice exposure! Favorite climb at the Lemmon!

Fun climb. First trad/mix lead of this grade for me. I only used nuts and even slung a chickenhead. I agree that the crux is around the third bolt but the rest is keeps one attentive.

This route is abysmally bad, and I found virtually nothing redeeming about it. The rock is solid, so I guess that's good.
The movement is terrible, the bolt placements are bad, the protection isn't great, and it's just not fun. I'd avoid it if at all possible.

Awwww, Peter. Too bad you had a bad time on this route. Most people like it and it's an acknowledged three star classic.
Sounds like you need a hug, brother.
