A great way to get the blood flowing in the morning! Felt easier than the second pitch of Abracadaver, which is supposed to be .10a/b (I think). Anyways, it's not as hard as .10 offwidth would suggest (in fact, I'm more inclined to give the lower, sporty, section a harder rating than the offwidth). The key to making the offwidth not-so-bad (spoiler) is to get your right leg horizontal and wedge it way back. May 19, 2015

the bottom section climbs and protects a lot better than it looks. fun sporty moves down low, awesome offwidthing up top, and solid gear the whole way (just be sure to use nuts in the hollow flake instead of cams). the 10b rating isn't from any one hard move, it's due to 30 feet of unrelenting offwidth. i felt more drained from this climb than any other single pitch i can remember.

i consider this route to be a must-do if you climb at the grade on lemmon. true crack climbing like this is an aberration on this mountain and a gem when you can find it. Apr 10, 2015
It is Co-op. Thanks Andrew. May 4, 2009
