A wonderful route, reminiscent of Knights of the Wrong Tissue. Perform a hard move to obtain the first bolt. Awkward feet and a long reach yield a jug and the second bolt. From here traverse along a rail and into a full rest. The second half and crux of the climb is classic Mount Lemmon tipped back edging. A well-deserved jug haul leads past the last bolt to the chains.

8 bolts to a chain anchor. Some might use a stick clip as reaching the first bolt is nontrivial and landing is bad. The route is shaded until approximately 2pm.

Interestingly there is a piton near the second bolt and piton anchors just below the current modern anchors.

This route came about after spending a week at Hueco Tanks with Todd Skinner. He had been working on a thing called the Gunfighter. He had been working on it for some time. The concept of "projecting" was so new to me and I decided to find a project. I am not positive but I think went up alone and rapped down the back side of Chimney pulling on to the wall drilling bolts as I went. I was guessing where they should go in order to clip them. I returned with Steve Amter and headed up planning to put as much time as it took to make this thing go. Got to the anchors clean first try, thus the name "Tomorrow is Today". Todd was really driven and his energy was boundless. It was fun and inspiring to hang with him.

Good story Eric.

I remember those days...Gunfighter was featured in Climbing mag I think. 13d seemed wicked...and it was trad. Todd was a good guy too.

Tomorrow was an early 12 for me. Tony Lusk belayed me on redpoint. I told him to give it a try. He said it was too hard, but then came within a whisker of flashing it.
