Description 

Crux is down low and I remember being scared when I lead it (pre micro cams). After the early moves it eases up a bit. Second pitch is probably R I did not do it.


Location 

The farthest left route on the east face of the goosehead.


Protection 

Fixed pin and standard rack.

Long time since I've been on this beaut. I remember a 1-1.5 rigid friend above the pin. The first 25-30ft is in your face. Cool crux moves and great crack climbing above. You can step right into Cred Gap/finish or belay. Second pitch is classic Mt.Lemmon funkness. Step out left to the airy crack system and head to the top. Feels like Stronghold climbing. Probably no harder than 10b but you will hold on hard.

Finally repointed this today after hanging on it once 30 years ago. The pin is still there but a little bush was hiding it. Down climbed and jumped on it a number of times to test it. A good purple Camalot goes in just below it so have a second one for the slot a body length above the pin. Found it to be tenuous and challenging and a little spooky as I don't really trust fixed pins much. Didn't do the second pitch as we didn't look at the topo so we ended up finishing on the top of Credibility Gap which was fun.
