Route Climbed: Tread Gently (5.8) Date Climbed: August 30, 2002
I found this to be a wonderfully aestethic climb, albeit one of the shorter routes on the mountain. Not suprisingly, the second pitch, rated 5.6 in the guide, was far from it. I would give it more like 5.8, due to some really smeary sections and one moderately difficult, thin seam. Sandbagged routes are par for the course for the area though. Don't try this climb or any others at the height of the day around this time of year-wicked sick hot!
Did the Trail and was amazed by the sheer cliffs on the mountain. My knee went out near the top of the trail. one of the people i hiked with gave me there hiking pole on the way down. It was very painfull. Hiked with members of hikearizona.com
