Fairly sustained climbing, no one definite crux. One guidebook gives this no stars, but it's pretty fun and well worth doing.


Second route on second tower, right of the arete (The Dark Side of Oz). Chains are just left of the giant hanging peanut. You can actually stand one foot on the peanut while at the anchors, if you trust it.


Bolts & chains.

A buddy and I did this route on Monday, and its pretty brutal in spots. I would give the 5.9 a plus just because of how consistently difficult it is. It was very do-able, just difficult. Lots of fun, great rock quality, awesome, but hard.

This climb is far less interesting than the 5.9's on the Wall of the Marching Munchkins. One interesting move, then hiking, then annoying cryptic route finding at the top. Skip it and go get on the fun stuff a few hundred feet to the right.
