This route is one of the best 5.9s on Southern Arizona. There are only 5 bolts in 6 long pitches, and every pitch is 5.9. Under the roof on the second or third pitch, place an alien and angle up LEFT through the roof to great holds and the green belay block. What an adventure. Very well protected except for 1 5.7 move on a smooth slab off the bolted belay. The last pitch is kind of hard to find. You should be belaying on the sloping ramp after the scary slabby 5.7 pitch. Head straight up the black streak to your left. There's only one black streak up there. Place a #1 camalot in the big pocket. Descent is with 1 60m rappel and 10 feet of downclimbing. Check out the Original 1974 summit register if you can find it. Rad.

Great fun. It was a 14.5 hour day. It took us longer than expected to climb the route. Not every pitch is 5.9, only 1, 4, and 6. The others are 5.8.
I took one short lead fall at the fourth pitch crux, but only because i was dumb and forgot to look for foot holds before i got into the sequence.
