Jim looking dandy as he cruises the route.


Thin face, side pulls, laybacking, underclings, stemming and a roof make this varied pitch worth doing. Has a little grunge around the edges and a ledge about 1/2 way up that is left of the bolt line and it should be avoided. If the crux were closer to the end I would give it three stars.


Across from Saguaro Corners. Starts from same ledge as Hootenanny.

This route is amazing! While the crux comes low, the climbing and rock just keep getting better. The dihedral finish is phenomenal and makes for one of the longest pitches at Milagrosa. The adequate, but not great rock quality, at the start keeps the route from being perfect.
By the way, I totally used the ledge out left. Now to return for the sister line.

12 bolts to leaver biners; morning shade until noon.
