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: Thanks for the beta! I used this the other day when we did Cloud Tower and it worked great. So easy and so worth it.

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: Oooo, how come I don't remember that wide crack? I must not have led that pitch.

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.

Comments: Oh man, this thing kicked my butt! You're amazing if you got up to there without falling. I stupidly did it in a tanktop and ended up with nasty rock burn on my shoulder.
