3 out of 5 stars Risk without rope

Today we climbed this route with packs on, in hiking shoes. I see people do it all the time. I felt silly last week using a rope and the few bolts for protection. But, walking up it this week, I don't know that it's worth the risk. At very least wear your climbing shoes.

4 out of 5 stars easy street

Its good lead training. It hardly qualifies as a warm up for those that can handle a 5.7 or higher

3 out of 5 stars Faster than the 4th Class!

This route is a good way to get up to the top of the Headwall to set up topropes for some of the routes (Headwall Route, Rappel Gully, Sleazy Street, and Rain of Terror I believe) or a quick way to go to the Monk. This route is probably a 5.3 or so and has bolts but most climbers wont need them if they climb confidently on this type of rock at a higher level. It's probably not a good idea to bring a friend from Maine who has never climbed above a 5.7 except in a gym up this without protection though as I saw a couple of guys doing just after I soloed it.

Anchor bolts are hidden behind the big boulder at the top.

2 out of 5 stars Climbed many times, posterity recording

Easy climb to left of Rappel Gully. I use this to scramble up solo to toprope Rappel for new people, but you can scoot even farther left and get some true 4th class scrambling. A couple bolts, experienced climbers won't need them but I suppose they're useful for new lead climbers.

2 out of 5 stars Thanks!

Careful about "dissing" the person that did this retro job! This person has probably done more for the AZ general climbing community than just about anyone I can think of - past or present. He's also a person thoughtful enough to know that the next newbie that falls and injures and/or kills themself on that route would likely lead to future access problems for the entire area. I would like to personally thank that person for their selfless work and expense on not only this route, but also for a number of new quality routes in an area not known for such.
