DescriptionAn old skool underground route that doesn't see much traffic. This route is a little test piece for the climber who is looking for something different on the Lemmon.
Layback (crux) the slabby flake with decent foot holds and make some bold moves to a chicken flake where you can whip out the cam ol western style and jam her in quick. After you have one or two good cams in, make tricky moves to a crack up higher then to some chicken heads and a small chimney. Belay above it.
Another one of those " they did that in the 70's?!" kinda routes.
