Description

This wild route climbs the arete at the left side of the main face of the Pharaoh. Unfortunately once you're up the arete things get more mundane.

Location

From the base of the main face of Pharaoh, find a sharp arete at the left side. Climb improbably up this then escape right through some bushes on a ledge to a gully system. Belay here and then up easier ground to the top. Great photo opportunities on the arete. An excellent way to the top if you're not up for Cripple Creek.

Protection

Standard Mt. Lemmon Rack

Super fun route, loved the exposed moves stepping over the roof. Traverse isn't difficult and has decent pro for the second. Chimney above was classic chimney climbing. Opted to stay in the chimney rather than take the slab to the right at the top. This led to the wrong set of anchors...and my partner left a red 04 Metolius TCU in the upper chimney. If found please call 518-225-5706, Thanks. Apr 1, 2017

I wouldn't call the 2nd pitch mundane; chimney/offwidth climbing is tricky for a gym climber. Apr 13, 2010
I recall this is really a pretty good pitch.
Steep and exposed for 5.7.

I don't recall what sort of variation Steve did on this but he led out low on the first pitch somewhere and then up into the alcove. Aug 12, 2008
