DescriptionKing line of the Goosehead and the 2nd established 5.14- on Mount Lemmon. The story of the first ascent is quite epic and is recounted by Andrew Bisharat in his article "Restoring Eric Scully".
Immediately difficult moves lead into a viciously powerful boulder problem around bolt 4 involving slopers, a 2 finger crimp and an enormous throw to a jug. Clip bolt 5 and fight through more thin and powerful moves to the chains. A discerning eye will notice that, outside of two holds reinforced with glue, this route is all natural (a rarity for hard climbs in the Tucson area).
No longer unrepeated. After many years without a repeat, The Morgue saw a second and third ascent in January 2014.
LocationTo the right of Death Warmed Over on the west face of the Goosehead. This is the line listed as "8. Project" in Squeezing the Lemmon II.
