Hey does anybody know if you can get off this route by climbing past the chains and walking down the back side? I forget if there's technical climbing past the anchor or not. Thanks! Aug 25, 2017

Definately a 5.4. I can't tell the difference between 5.4 and 5.5, but my 7 year old can just barely climb 5.4s and he was able to make it to the top. May 5, 2013

Cool to see a nice bolted 5.4...black streak in the wall is pretty sweet. Mar 31, 2013

Fun & friendly route for a first lead & drilling some basics (rappelling, cleaning, coaching gym climbers to stop to looking for tape). An excellent welcome to Mt Lemmon- thanks! May 31, 2012

This was my second outdoor lead climb ever; easier than the first as I was comforted in knowing what to do upon reaching the chains. The is an ideal climb for a first time lead especially with the ledge in there- gives one a moment to celebrate their courage! Sep 1, 2011

You'd need one hell of a running start to take a whipper on this one, good thing for the huge ledges up top. Jun 25, 2010

I remember taking some big whippers on this one. Pretty damn hard for a 5.4 Its more like a 5.5 + Jun 25, 2010

Thanks for bolting this one Scott! I'm giving it three stars for being the best 5.4 on Lemmon.

This is a perfect first climb for anybody and there aren't many people willing to stick the time and money into bolting 5.4s so major points for bolting a climb for everybody! Jun 25, 2010

Hard to give this climb any stars. However, it's a perfect first outdoor climb, since: it's ueber easy, there's a 5.5 next door, and plenty of other easy climbs nearby. Too bad about the droves of people, though.

Note to you guys who want your first outdoor lead to be a 5.7: practice on really easy stuff, like this climb, to get the basics down. I've seen too many people nearly kill themselves because of a terrible mix of pride & stupidity. Mar 23, 2007
