Comments: This route is on the far right side of the west face before you turn the corner. A steep reddish face is just left of the start. Good route with a tenuous start. The upper arete section is really good.

Comments: This route needs some gear or you will have to run it out. Great to set up as a TR for beginners.

Comments: Thought this route was a bit harder but less sustained than the route to the right.

Comments: Well things seem to have cleaned up quite well. The route was very clean. Steep sustained straight forward climbing.

Comments: Have to agree with Jon Ruland, this one did feel harder than the route just right of it.

Comments: I see from the photo that the Manzanita has been burnt away. Michael Jimmerson had to break through about 10 feet of of the stuff. It was about 6 feet tall and I was amazed at how easily you could break pretty thick branches.

Comments: Hey Greg, It is funny that I don't really remember much about this climb and have been surprised that people find this route to be so good. I only remember that it was a crack that took good pro the whole way which is rare on the Lemmon. When we did this route in the 1980s there was only one route that had been started by Steve Grossman and Peter Noebels on the wall to the left. Sounds like it would be worth checking them out.

Comments: We added the new bolts when the manzanita came down as well doing the new start sequence. Good idea to mention it.

Comments: Nice going Jake. Here is a little help. Yard Boss is left of Just Punishment then comes Safecracker. There is also an Exercise Yard Right.

Oh, and north is back toward the parking area. The steep wall is roughly north facing. This topo/guide business is hard to get right. Good for you for being helpful.

Comments: Brian's comments relate to winter visits. In the late spring, summer or early fall it is sunny in the morning. Maybe just summer.

Comments: Hey Kids, just got back to town. My memory is often faulty with anything older than a week but I thought that Ron Farrel added the bolts to this climb. I thought he climbed with you Joe and thought it would be okay. Might have been Ben Burnham too. I don't know. I am sure it can be brought back to the way you did it Joe if you want. As you say it isn't really some test piece especially from a guy who climbed the things you have climbed. Much more impressive to me are the much harder route... more >>

Comments: There are at least 3 and maybe 5 no hands rests on this route. If you think it is hard or pumpy you are not using the rests.

Comments: Is it up there on the wall next to the thin seems with the orange rock? You know the one that starts above the ledge with the bushes? You know the one with the carabiners and quick links at the anchors. A little more info would help. Except for the chain draw you just described half a dozen routes there. You might start by looking at the overhead in SQ II on page 44 so you know if you were on the Queen or not.

Is it left or right of the two routes that start the same? Is it to the right of... more >>

Comments: The question is will he Whip or will he make it! Whiporwill, get it. That is a bird also for those who are ornithologically ignorant. I hope I spelled this correctly.
