This is one of the best, if not the best route, in Buena Vista. The rock quality is beautiful. Start under a bulge, and pull up into a face climbing mecca of crimps, and ledges.


This is the second leftmost route on the left mound of rock.


Draws, well protected.

Fun climb I really enjoyed climbing but I doubt I will remember it past next month. Not sure I would give it 4 stars but I only did 3 routes in the valley and they were the two routes to the right of this one. On Mt. Lemmon it would get two stars in a 3 star system.

Great demanding climb. Starts out making you work and keeps you thinking to the end. Well protected and fun lead.

I didn't think this route was that great, and the rating is a bit soft. The crux around the bulge and second bolt is pretty fun but after that . . . .

Lots of fun solid crimps on this one! Well-protected with a tough crux around the second bolt. It eases up a little after that, but the climbing is quality all the way to the end.

Note: Nut on the left anchor bolt is loose. I was able to spin it easily by hand as of 6/27/2014.
