Description 

Great route! Route follows an obvious and classic crack to a ledge about 50 feet up. Sustained 5.6 climbing, classic location - don't miss this route on your day of Saguaro Lake boat-climbing. We've already removed the loose stuff. Descent: Jump! (Make sure you have some experience jumping into deep water from heights and of course make sure that there's no one and no boats directly below you!) There's also a rest-ledge about 25ft up where you can bail out with less of a jump if it's getting too high for you.

Protection 

Deep Water Solo - no gear, just get ready for the plunge into the lake if/when you slip off.
