Working the crack in the first pitch of Crab Corne...

Description 

Squeezing the Lemmon II has a good topo. Look for a slightly less than vertical sloped open book with a crack right up the center. Climb up the crack and bear right when it splits. I seem to recall a bolt on the face to the right after the crack splits.

Protection 

small and medium cams and stoppers. Plenty of good placements.

The first pitch was fun, the second was not worth doing at all.

Second pitch is 5.6ish at most, bring a cordelette to lasso formations at top, or gear anchor further down with big cams.

Maybe worth doing if you're in the mood for something easy or if you left your packs up top.

I like the first pitch a lot because it forces you to crack climb a bit, which is rare on Mt. Lemmon.

first pitch is sweet because you get to do actual, reallife, no joke, serious crack climbing for about 40 feet. the second pitch is--well--meh. i'd give the first pitch three stars and the second pitch one star.
