5 out of 5 stars Best route in Northern AZ?

I think so. I suggest combining the first 3-pitches (yes including the crux) into a mega-pitch. There are multiple rests and with liberal use of slings can be done without significant rope drag. Combine the last 2-pitches and you've done this route in 2-pitches.

11/17/09-lead 3rd pitch clean on gear without clipping bolts.

Gear was solid. In fact, I took a fall on my first gear attempt. I agree with Ronnie that some consideration should be given to whether those bolts should remain.

5 out of 5 stars finally

The 3rd pitch takes good gear the entire way. It should be sent and the bolts pulled.
