Mystery of the Desert, 5.9

1st Pitch- 30m- 5.7/ This first pitch is not the obvious left facing corner. Rather it follows the next corner/crack to the left. They have completely bolted the right side of this crack, typical Cochise bolting ethics. The first few bolts help with the bouldery start to enter the corner. Then easy climbing, placing gear at will, runs up the solid crack until you hit an obvious dike heading out left. Traverse (clipping one bolt on a bolted route directly below this fixed belay if you want) out left to the fixed belay.
