115 foot pitch.
This route has sustained climbing with unusual face holds for Mt. Lemmon.
Starts a few feet right of the black streak roughly where the trail from the drainage meets the wall. If you don't have a 70M rope there is a second set of anchors (you climb past them on the way up) to lower down to. On the way down tie in straight, pull the rope, tie back into the rope and lower the rest of the way to the ground.
is this thing go on forever????Ryan on lead
Fun climbing from start to finish.

Good slab with unusual holds. Has some scaley potato-chips at one of the final cruxes that I should have kicked off while lowering.

lots of small loose stuff, but after 50-100 more climbers help kick off most of the kitty litter this may well be a tucson classic.

You can be lowered using a 60 meter rope - go slow and lower down near the tree (climbers right)
Good quality route - traffic must cleaning it up. Nothing skated for me :)

Very nice. It's 5.10 from bottom to top. Plenty clean now too.

Don't know if it is from the cold temps we have been having but this climb had a lot of lil pieces of rock coming off of it today. Good climb though. Like the other comments say from top to bottom this thing is 5.10. If you let up on this, you will have a first class ticket for a few feet.
