An old-school Tucson route, linking obvious features left of Cripple Creek. For the FA, RR and I poached the line from Steve Grossman and Fig, who had been up to the crux several months earlier (I remember guiltily avoiding them for weeks afterwards). We did it in three pitches, but the first two likely have been combined by now (if not, they should, although double ropes or liberal slinging may be necessary). I vaguely remember that we named it for the crux maneuver, thinking we were so clever, only later to find out that the phrase was somewhat well worn, even then. The crux is well protected, but expect some true trad excitement elsewhere.
Double cams to 3 inch, full set plus of wired nuts, including micro brass or steel, many runners.
