Thin start to crimpy sidepulling. Hope you've got titanium fingertips.
Tenth route from the left end of the Wall of Marching Munchkins. Shares the first bolt with Poppies Will Make Them Sleep, then heads right.
Bolts, chain anchor.

This route is not 10, or even 10+. Compared to all other 10s and 11s at Munchkinland, and other Mt Lemmon classics in the 10+/11- range (Steve's Arete, Arizona Flyaways, Just Do It), this is solid 11-, if not 11.
Unless of course I was completely dicking it up, but I was climbing with a couple other competent 5.11 leaders and they agreed.
Either way, don't hop on this thinking it would be a good warm-up.

Could be we are all missing a hold but I would agree, it is harder than the rating given.

Good to hear that the consensus is in the 11 zone. I've been on it the last three times out and haven't finished it with less than one fall. I'm not falling on the other tens in the area.

The easiest way to climb this route is to clip the first bolt, touch but not clip the bolt of the climb to the left, and then traverse right to the second clip. The direct approach is significantly harder. Scott provided this beta so it conforms to the "original vision".
The route is sustained but there is no single move harder than the crux of Ruby Slippers. Or I could just be misremembering.
