Description 

Tighten the edging shoes and have a clear head before leading this beauty. We top-roped this route and it still rivals some of the best, often climbed routes in the McDowell's. The first pitch is excellent on its own and would protect safely and easily with medium cams, felt 5.7. Pitch two is more demanding and possibly frightening if you fall. From the chain anchor, climb past bolt and upward to thin crack out right. Crack will take small cams and nuts. Exit crack to the left, cross the thin face and make it to a beautiful, solid crack that takes you to the summit.

Location 

Find the Main Wall, not hard since the trail walks right by it and you will see the start. Pick your crack and head to the chain anchors at a nice belay stance. You can see all of this from the trail.

Protection 

Medium and small gear, two bolts, chains at the 90 foot mark if you decide to break the route into two pitches (advisable). Anchors at the summit.
