This route has a long hike in, but really is a high-quality, enjoyable route. Expect mostly off-widths and chimneys but the movement is quite good.

The climb was put up during the winter of 2011. Andrew and I (Garrett) started this route and ran into a difficult squeeze chimney 250 feet up. I knew just who to call. My good friend Kyle Kent was going to school in Prescott AZ. He is a off width beast. He climbed the squeeze chimney with seven bolts put in on lead with 50 foot run outs. We added 4 bolts on rappel to make it a safe lead. The next week Andrew and I topped it out. If you like offwidth you must climb this route. The rock quality is amazing and the gear is great.
