There didn't seem to be many other high quality routes in the area (The Sting looks high quality but neither of us wanted to tackle a Steve Grossman 11+). But this enjoyable crack route makes the short walk to the cliff worthwhile for the whimsical Mt. Lemmon crack enthusiast. I thought it was a strong two stars.
To descend, we walked to the top of Lizard Rock and found an anchor at the top of a bolted route to rappel from (belaying down to the anchor). This anchor was a bit old, and rappelling from a tree might be a better option--there are many in the vicinity. There also appears to be an easy 5th class downclimb, but it was wet. It would also be possible to walk off the northern end of the cliff, but this would be a long walk back to the base of the route.
