Dihedral, to crack, to wide but not unpleasant crack to classic Mt lemmon face climbing across the headwall to the final crux moves. This route is on the upper tier of rocks called the Heliosphere. Follow trail at the base of the first wall you reach (The Griddle) up and left to a cairn. Contour east or right following more cairns. Where you start going up the hill turn back west gradually gaining altitude until you reach the left side of another couple of crags. (200 ft.) Head up the gully to base of cliff. Walk left under an oak tree. This slightly overhanging route starts in the short orange dihedral with a bolt.
