Yes I have another question about a route, this one is a three bolter on the far right of the formation that has All Along the Watchtower in the Shoe Tips Area in Queen Creek. It is smooth with flakes up both sides of it, to a bulgey slightly past vertical top. It was a tricky climb, but we want to know the actual rating. I thought it was 9 but it seems quite a bit harder than a nine. Anyone know of this route?

I just climbed that route last week and I too am looking for info on that route. It would be cool to know who set it, what its called and how hard it is. We climbed it on a friends birtday and he led it and we both rated it at about a 5.10a/b and temp named it "bithday boy" untill we find the true name and rating. let me know if you ever find out.
