Description

  • note, as an important part of the adventure the route will only be described briefly.

the route begins out of the tree above the bivy with mixed hard free and hard aid climbing. The pitch beginning about a full rope length above lion's ledge is the free crux of the route. This extremely long pitch has the crux near its end without any quality gear below you. This climbing was the culmination of the duos efforts some 25 years ago to push new grade 6 routes up a the largest wall in Southern Arizona. Without rope failure a deck fall may still be possible from this point. After the completion of this pitch, the route soon joins "Dreams" for a pitch before branching off to the summit via its own line.

Location

Right of the Spring on Lion's Ledge is a good tree and flat area ideal for bivy. (This is left of the rock base of "Luca's" chopped out arch). the climb begins out of the tree.

Protection

Standard Desert Rack, pins to 3", all hooks, heads.
