Description 

A must do for the Tucson trad climber. A little fuzzy right now but with a bit more traffic and some buffing by Jimbo ha ha it will be sweet. Only two bolts on this route, one before and one at the crux. The gear on this route is great and the climbing really good all the way to the chains.


Location 

Main weakness on the left side of the Sphinx. Climb slab to a small roof 7 feet or so off the ground then into corner then right to bulge with huecos. Works up between two chossy sections of rock on dark brown rock then moves into the crack system.


Protection 

2 bolts and a rack of doubles from the little blue micro cams for the start, up to Yellow Camalot size and 1 blue should be enough.
