165' of superb climbing. The Queen Creek Guide book only gives it 2 stars becasue they say it is loose in sections. I think this is the BEST climb I have ever climbed at queen creek, and I have climbed alot. The first bolts are run-out but when the crux comes 30 feet from the top and your forearms are screamin the bolts are all right there. Unbelievably good route.

Really neat climb! Clean TR as second (no hangs) - but this does not mean I'm ready to come back and lead it. Too scary! Run out on first half, then another little runout near top in cruxy area. Really needs a midway belay station for a rap on one rope, if not for a rest spot. Holds are all there with some good rests, but still an endurance fest.
