Begin in a corner between a tree and the face (offwidth crack to your right) for ten feet. Continue up a great hands crack dihedral with quality face holds. Move through a short section with flakes (crux) and continue the last few feet to the top.
A real classic T-Wall moderate that sees little traffic.
Located just past Serenity falls (traveling from the Cibola trail). The first dihedral along the trail. Look for the tree very close to the rock face.
Standard T-Wall rack. No anchors at top. Slings around a dead (albeit large) tree about twenty feet back from the top of the cliff.

Just climbed this yesterday. A fantastic climb that deserves more traffic, even if the inside of the crack is a little wet like yesterday. As much fun or better than similarly graded routes in the Orange Blossom walls.
The tree with slings at the top appears dead and is a good distance back from the cliff edge.
Ring anchors on a climb like this would be valuable to help to reduce the impact on the trees above. Alternatively this climb has a quality crack for building toptope anchors on gear toward the top. Would recommend building an anchor if multiple followers are top roping the climb.
Great climb, highly recommend!

Pretty good route, but not as high quality as the classic 5.7's at the other end of the cliff. Worth doing if in the area, but not a destination climb. Also, getting to the anchor involves clawing your way up 30 ft of loose, scrubby terrain.
