One bolt, gear

Be sure that your fingers are warmed up for the first ten feet. It is steep and hard especially if you don't nail the sequence which I proved is easy to do. Once you figure out the move it is definitely 5.10.Might want a stick for the first and only bolt on the route. Mar 4, 2009

This is a very good route. Stout moves past a bolt at the start. Very interesting moves and thoughtful protection the rest of the way up. A must-do at Weathertop. Nov 19, 2011

Great mt. lemmon "crack". Stiff moves at the start are a bit hard to decipher, but its quite a short sequence to crank through. Awkward and cool moves all the way to the top. An attentive belayer should be just fine for the start. Nov 24, 2016
I was just deleting excess photos and saw some from Weathertop. This made me wonder if people were getting up there as I think it is one of the better cool weather crags we have. Nov 25, 2016
