EFR high up on the route


The first half of this route is super fun climbing that angles up and left to a ledge. You may find yourself out of your depth beyond this point. Shake out as things get thin, hard and difficult to unravel. The climb finishes on Naranja. The moves left to the anchors are not too bad but some might want a yellow Camalot to protect them.


Starts between Naranja and Clip Tide.


14 bolts to leaver biner anchors. A yellow cam is optional.

I wonder if the star ratings given by folks for this and for Clip Tide are based on Reef standards versus Mt. Lemmon standards. Both this climb and Clip Tide are 3 stars anywhere on the mountain, IMO.
