The 5.9 mixed route follows the yellow line

Description 

The crux of this route is at the top and protected by 3 bolts.
Venus'Flytrap is a climb described in "Steigers Guide" as a neglected route with variations that follow cracks on the narrow west face. Pg. 79 of the 1985 John Steiger guide (Climber's Guide to Sabino Canyon and Mt. Lemmon Highway)


Location 

Work your way up into obvious squeeze chimney and be sure to wear pants or knee pads! This one is the 5.9. the 5.8 start follows the small cracks to the left. This area was cleaned up with the help of Christian Rodenbeck, Robert Mcleod, Andy Tretiakoff and Nick Spriggshall.


Protection 

Small Tcu's and Camalots to #5. Doubles on #4 helpful and lot of long slings. 2 bolt coldshut anchor.
