2 out of 5 stars Way tougher than it's rating, not worth it.

Found a Cam, nut, biner where people had to bail, proving this one is sorely rated in the books. This one felt more like a 5.9 to me. A little easier if you go left of the corner. All in all NOT worth the approach and trip back to the car. Cactus everywhere, very very faint trail, awakward loose shail making the slide down tough and annoying. Wouldn't return.

BEWARE! IF YOU USE THE RAP RINGS AND WEBBING AT TOP THERE IS A LOT OF ROPE DRAG AND PULLING DOWN IS TOUGH, IF IT DOESN'T GET STUCK like ours did. You can solo Minute Maid, a true 5.6, and scramble over if needed.

4 out of 5 stars Inside corner crack.

Excellent. Followed the inside corner. Compared to Calico Basin climbs, this is a 5.8 or 5.8+.
