Description 

Mid-Mountain covers climbs between Willow Canyon Circle (~milepost 16) up to the Palisades Ranger Station (milepost 19.4).

This large area has a huge diversity of climbing in cool ponderosa pine forest, offering a great respite from the desert. However, large portions of the forest in this area were burned in the 2004 Aspen Fire. Be on the lookout for falling dead trees and other hazards in burn areas.

The 22-year-old drilled pin has been replaced with a bolt. (Squeezing the Lemmon quality scale: 3 out of 3 stars.) Pitch 1 – Begin in a shallow left-facing corner (thoughtful protection) that turns into a prominent right-leaning weakness. Look for a bolt approximately 30 feet up.
