Comments: It's definately not a gimmie if you're 5 foot tall and you stick to the bolt line. Since I'm too much of a weenie to go way off left into 49 (I hate being too far to the side of the bolts), I use the little crimpers and it feels 12d.

Comments: The new NM falcon guide is out! It's pretty darn inclusive from what I saw when I glanced at it. Even has secret areas like the Dungeon.

Comments: I'd be happy to help. I used to live in Los Alamos. Also, Falcon came out with a new NM book and it's pretty inclusive. Would be a good reference. Let me know if there's any areas in particular you need help with.

Comments: Okay, more gear beta to mull over... I brought 2 sets of camalots up to #3 with 6 #1s. I didn't place the #3s at all- waste of weight damn it! I placed 5 #1s on the 4th pitch and was happy to have them. I'm not sure where everyone was placing all those green camalots since the red ones seemed to fit nicely.

And, being 5 foot tall, I don't think the crux on the 3rd pitch is easier for short people. It's actually quite a reach to that gaston flake and the feet are w... more >>

Comments: Personally, I think the technical crux comes at the top when it turns into an offwidth after lovely thin hands crack climbing and laybacking. They should have put the anchors about 10 feet lower!

Comments: This was my favorite climb at IC. So much fun and great bouldery moves. I made it super exciting by not bringing enough small cams.

Comments: Definately just bring one rope and do the single rope descent. Supertopo does have the description nailed and I posted a pic of the "cool little arch" you climb through right before you head left and downclimb the chimney (which was wet when we did it on April 2). On the 3rd pitch after the 4th class section, make sure you don't place all of your small gear before the bolt! You'll need some to get up that dihedral!

Also, if the forecast says 15-20 mph winds in town, expect them to be 60mph u... more >>

Comments: Relatively easy climbing to about 3/4 of the way up where there's a long reach involving a chipped hold. This route is on the left arete of the White Wall.

Comments: Such an amazing line! One of the cleanest cracks in Sedona, but I still pulled a giant block off, so wear your helmet!

Comments: There are anchors on the summit, so look around for them. I was goofy enough to belay off of some marginal gear right next to the big bomer bolts! Silly me.

Comments: You should send that to Climbing Mag or R&I. It's an amazing shot. I wish I could rate it supergreat! I made it my desktop. Thanks for such a wonderful pic.

Comments: When I did this route, we were lucky enough to be the only people on it. Now I realize what a rarity that was! It is an amazing line, but very crowded. We hiked up there yesterday to do Cloud Tower and by the time we got to the top of the 3rd pitch a party that was there before we arrived, finally go their turn on CC. My advice would be to bring the guidebook when you head up there to do it and if it's super crowded, get on one of the other classics nearby. I've heard great things about Spa... more >>

Comments: What a route! I can't say for sure how hard that crux pitch was, cause my partner aided it, so I hung a lot to clean the gear, but it felt very strenuous.

I felt that the 4th pitch required many #3 and #3.5 or #4 camalots. I wished I would have had maybe 2 #3s, 3 #3.5 and 3 #4s, but then again my trad onsight leading limit is 5.10+, so this was pretty close to my limit. Depending on how comfortable the person leading this pitch is, they may need fewer ca... more >>

Comments: Wow, more like 5.10, for the bolted finish? Were we on the same route? I regularly climb 5.12 sport and I couldn't make the moves on the 5.11 final pitch. I took a whipper on the first bolt (coming close to the ledge) and then not wanting to hit the ledge, actually put my fingers through the second bolt- scary, but effective. You must be about 6 foot tall for that pitch to feel easy! In retrospect, I wish we would have done the traverse finish.

Comments: Yeah, I totally agree. I cruised the supposed 5.10+ part and then flailed in the 5.9 part. Repeated whippers I tell you. So much so, that my belayer says "maybe you'd like to put another piece in!" Ha, ha.
