Comments: I agree with the slider beta. Not crucial, but certainly nice. Small nuts can be useful too depending on personal preference. What a route! It's hard not to spray about this thing but will keep my words limited to allow a fresh experience for others.

Comments: I agree with toast. The climbing is decent but this was put up ground up and so didn't get the cleaning it should have. Don't climb this while someone is at the base.

Comments: It is possible that the finger crack has been climbed before but we cleaned a good bit of stuff off. The upper section had a sketchy teeter-totter block on it and had not been climbed.

Comments: Nice write up Casey but I think that the description of the 1st pitch should be clarified. 90% of the pitch goes free at 10 or 11 with a fixed line to get up the first 30 feet, and then you may need to pull on some bolts in the middle of the pitch. Definitely try and climb as much of this pitch free as possible!

Comments: Awesome! Not sure if you are the guy I met in Potrero recently. Either way congrats. Hidden is now home to a place to learn how to top rope and 5.13+.

Comments: Only at the Waterfall would you get a half-dozen bolts followed by two loweball placements. Awesome! A great route.

Comments: A very good route. Sedona now has a holy trinity of must do big free routes. Great Dihedral, Into the Wild, and People's Republic of Vermont.

Pitch 3 is amazing.

Comments: This route was thought to be harder by a number of people and may settle in harder than 11c. With my beta 5.11c feels accurate though get on it and post what you think!

Comments: Excellent route on great rock. I got dive bombed twice (but not hit) by a falcon in late April. His/her nest was about 30 feet up and left from the chains. Maybe stay off of this for a few months, for your sake as well as the falcon's.

Comments: I climbed here for the first time last weekend. It is some of the best rock in Arizona. Really cool climbing.

Manny, I do recommend that the guidebook ratings get adjusted in the next edition. We found them to be on average one or two full letter grades soft compared to the rest of Arizona.

Comments: Thanks for the beta. Though, MB is no longer the hardest/longest sandstone route in the world. Many new Venezuelan Tepui climbs are harder and longer.

Comments: Giving this a grade V is a huge stretch. Considerint that all belays are bolted and the climbing is well bolted, this is a IV.

Competent climbers should bring no aid gear. The bolts are tight enough so that you can pull on draws and step on bolts to clip the next bolt, and repeat. For both leader and follower.

Comments: Props to Darren for the send. I was psyched just to hold the rope on this one! A stunning line in a beautiful place.
