Description

A great addition to the mountain, this well-protected route features a Mount Lemmon rarity: large holds. Ascend less-than-vertical face using a leaning crack system to reach a roof. Pull the roof following a non-intuitive yet obvious sequence to reach an overhanging corner system. Climb a fantastic sequence to obtain the chains.

Location

This route is the leftmost of three routes on the southeast, less overhung side of The Gallery. It starts from a comfortable ledge with a belay bolt. The route can be reached by scrambling up two fixed ropes or by rappel.

Protection

9 bolts to anchors with lower offs.

Did this today, good job on the bolting, angle allowed me to work out the crux puzzle. Only a little fuzzy but worth doing. Great to climb something I have never been. Thanks Luke and Tiff. Feb 6, 2016

I did my best to do a thorough job cleaning the loose rock on this climb, but it might still be cleaning up a bit. Belayer beware as there isn't really anywhere to move from the belay perch if debris falls. I also intend to move one bolt still as the clip right where the going gets steep is a little reachy?.
Lastly, there is a right variation of this climb (shares bolts 1 and 2) that used to have red tag. Not sure if it's still there, but it is unclimbed and still needs some work. Enjoy! Jan 27, 2016
