You can almost belay from your tailgate..

Description 

Following a ramp start you will encounter three bolts of classic Mt. Lemmon edging. Finish up with some easier arete climbing.

Although this climb is nowhere near as soothing as Morgan Freeman's voice it is fun.

Location 

Continuing on the trail past Re-Gifting this is the next route you will come upon. Identifiable as it climbs a short arete section at the very top.

Protection 

8 bolts to chain anchors.

  • Bolt 4 is high due to low quality rock below it for a lower bolt placement - the permadraw is there for community use. Please do not steal this lest you prefer to be condemned to fail on your project for the next calendar year.

Pretty excellent (and stout!) for about 30 feet. Reminds me of a few Milagrosa climbs.

I just climbed this again for the first time since last summer. I'm not sure if I've gotten weaker (probably this one) or something has come off, but there are some serious pulls on small holds between the perma-draw and the next bolt. Felt much harder than "entertainment tonight" this time around...

Luckily the perma-draw allows for easy retreat if you're working into these grades.
