Multiple cruxs ands great rock make this one of Mt. Lenmmon's best crack climbs.


Obvious crack line on right end of formation.
One bolt protects steep hard moves to gain the crack. Stick clip the bolt or have a good spot as the landing will end you climbing season if you blow it.


One bolt, gear

Be sure that your fingers are warmed up for the first ten feet. It is steep and hard especially if you don't nail the sequence which I proved is easy to do. Once you figure out the move it is definitely 5.10.Might want a stick for the first and only bolt on the route.

This is a very good route. Stout moves past a bolt at the start. Very interesting moves and thoughtful protection the rest of the way up. A must-do at Weathertop.

Great mt. lemmon "crack". Stiff moves at the start are a bit hard to decipher, but its quite a short sequence to crank through. Awkward and cool moves all the way to the top. An attentive belayer should be just fine for the start.

I was just deleting excess photos and saw some from Weathertop. This made me wonder if people were getting up there as I think it is one of the better cool weather crags we have.
