A moderate route that is overshadowed in both quality and difficulty by its neighbors.

The gear was a bit sparse but not unsafe.


The first route from the left, Ringtail Cat starts in a dihedral behind a pine tree.


Standard or light Mt Lemmon rack. Fixed anchor with leaver biners. Alternatively one can walk off as was originally done.

Maybe it was different when this climb was added to MP, but I did this today and this climb and Graceland share a set of anchors with leaver biners.
