Unfortunately start this from the 1st belay (really mid pitch) of Crows Nest. The belayer should be here to be "on" for the leader and reduce drag. I am also going to highly recommend that you only climb this on cooler shady days but to each his own. This is a great pitch in itself and follows steel gray rock with old school mt lemmon protection through several cruxes. You can follow the dished section all the way to the top right of the original route and is well worth the journey.


Branching from top of 1st original pitch of Crows Nest to the right.
