One of Mt. Lemmons best and has some of the most solid rock you will find on the mountain. Look for the route with the huge looped stainless bolts. The first ascent party skipped the boulder start by climbing the tree. Now days most people just stick clip the first bolt and yard up or do the hard start and add a letter grade to the difficulty. A few crack climbing skills can help early on (but not required) then the technical crux sequence comes. Get through that and hope your endurance is up to par because you have a long way to go on gently overhanging rock. Find the rests (one devious and one not hard to find) and it wont be so bad.
