Squeezing the Lemmon II has a good topo. Look for a slightly less than vertical sloped open book with a crack right up the center. Climb up the crack and bear right when it splits. I seem to recall a bolt on the face to the right after the crack splits.


small and medium cams and stoppers. Plenty of good placements.

The first pitch was fun, the second was not worth doing at all. Nov 19, 2007

Second pitch is 5.6ish at most, bring a cordelette to lasso formations at top, or gear anchor further down with big cams.

Maybe worth doing if you're in the mood for something easy or if you left your packs up top.

I like the first pitch a lot because it forces you to crack climb a bit, which is rare on Mt. Lemmon. Feb 22, 2008

first pitch is sweet because you get to do actual, reallife, no joke, serious crack climbing for about 40 feet. the second pitch is--well--meh. i'd give the first pitch three stars and the second pitch one star. Feb 22, 2008

I bailed on lead at the roof (left a 0.3 C4 in that roof crack, it sounds a little hollow, I hung on it but not sure I'd want to whip). In any case, yeah I bailed there because I punked out and couldn't figure out how to get out on the face, got all pumped and decided I didn't want to whip on that C4. I lowered off a bomber DMM #8 & #4? I'm sorry for the garbage, I'll try and retrieve it soon, if someone does before me, then cheers & climb on.

BTW, what a great pitch! The fingers felt bomber for me, I was mostly having trouble finding good feet. Great challenge for us mediocre climbers! Worth the bushwack! Jun 2, 2018
Hey Don, we bootied your two nuts and alpine draws from the crack today- bomber indeed! That roof crack takes a bomber black tricam, I too tried a C4 first and it seemed sketchy. You can reach me at (520) 2.7.1- and I would be happy to return your gear. Cheers Nov 6, 2018 · Lost & Found
