Comments: Now I know why! My beta was all wrong on Aurora. I was using the 12c beta. Yes, Aurora is easier.

Comments: Classic adventure route. So good. Do it in a day, this is not a good route for hauling or carrying heavy packs.

Comments: A good route. Thanks for removing the bolts Eric, it was much more memorable that way. And gave me a bigger case of sewing-machine leg!

Comments: It was a circus out there. Getting the nut out after everyone was falling on it involved a lot of shenanigans. Awesome route!

Comments: Nope, haven't done Aurora on gear yet. But, Red Dwarf on gear went easier for me than Aurora on bolts.

Comments: Great route! Though, both Adam and I thought it was 11d/12aish. Sun spots is a nice hard trad crag, not many of those on Mt. Lemmon. Adds a lot to the mountain. Nice work EFR and others.

Comments: I thought so too but the Kerry guide did not have a Y. I'll change it for now and ask Ray next time I see him.

Comments: The climbing is high quality and fun, but yes, it is too bad that it interferes with an established route.

Comments: Great route. Don't be intimidated. Get on it! I would call many of the 5.11 pitches atleast two letter grades easier than what the guidebook gives them. The pitch ratings are pretty soft.

Comments: Sorry Eric, I pulled a big chunk off this route. Sometimes I pull so hard I just rip the rock to shreds, can't help it. There is now a exposed band of epoxy where it used to be behind a flake. I enjoyed the bottom half despite *ahem* the bolted 15 foot crack.

Comments: Hey, I think I met you guys the night after you did this climb last winter. If I remember correctly you aided a bit of it. Has this gone free?

Comments: Before getting on this I was intimidated by the stories of poor gear below the bolt. But, I found three bomber and easy placements below the bolt and thought the route to be very safe. I couldn't have asked for better gear.

Comments: Hi Meagan,

We got our ropes stuck while rapping that chimney too! I did have to go on belay to go up and get them unstuck, but luckly it was easy. See you at JTree soon.

Comments: Beagle - That is getting way too specific to judge a send with. I will sometimes not tape for thin hands and tape for teacups, as do many climbers. Would that technique also not count?

Comments: Beautiful dome, though someone drilled bolts everywhere on the upper section. Too many bolts for a wilderness climbing area.

Comments: I think you did miss something. I did it this weekend and it felt 5.10. Though I think that a back-step at the crux is crucial to keeping the grade at 5.10.
