One of the best moderate multi-pitch climbs on Lemmon. Thanks guys!! May 19, 2008

I would bring a few more draws for the long second pitch or you will be down climbing to get them from the bolts below. If you break the last pitch in two you don't need as many draws. Jun 29, 2008

Absolutely stellar climb.
I doubt though that the 5.9 first pitch is for the struggling 5.9 leader. Bit of a run out at the crux and if you miss, or blow the pro, well... it's going to hurt.

Second pitch is just a lot of fun with 3 (?) bulges and moderate stuff in between. Mar 23, 2009

true words paul. you can, however, easily bail onto the 5.9 bolted route to the left of it if you get sketched.

as is the norm for mount lemmon, the crack looks terrible but it climbs a lot better than you would expect. cool jamming and stemming up high. Nov 22, 2015

Climbed Castle as an alternate start as there was a lot of water at the crux of this climb. Castle was wet as well but I had a big fat bolt protecting me as I did the crux. This is a really great two pitch route if you can place pro. If not, wet or dry do Castle. The second pitch will make you forget the first sport pitch isn't nearly good as the second. Dec 23, 2016
