This is an north-west facing arete around the corner west of Cheers -- the arete to the right of Wheres Mike. Follow the bolts with good hands and feet. Protection is easy to place from good stances. Watch out for loose rock on this one. Long chains at the top. This route got its name from the nutcase pilot that was buzzing the ridges in the area while the route was being developed.
Mixed. 3 bolts and gear to 1". I placed a #5 stopper and a Yellow Alien. Chain anchors.

This is a great warm up for the crag and it is a shame that there are not mor areas on Lemmon that have good first leads such as this climb. It is of decent length and well worth climbing.

This route needs some gear or you will have to run it out. Great to set up as a TR for beginners.

There is a very large flake that is just barely held on at the base of this route and a little to the right. I can shake the entire thing. Watch out.
