Description 

This route is on the NW corner of the rock. Once you're @ the top, use the chains on the back-left. Good: Great view of Tucson. Bad: You'll be in full-view of the gawking tourists at Windy Point..."Duh, how'd they get the rope up thur?"

Protection 

Passive pro <1" should do the trick.

Decent climbing and the easiest way to the top of a cool summit.

Sort of anti-climactic. A good way to set up a top rope on Steve's Arete if you wish.

maybe bring long runners and a cordelette for top rope if you want to climb it several times. ok climb, worth doing.

This is no sport route, the first half is a gear lead.

Great summit to experience if you're new to the area. Last bolt is reachy for pint size folks.
