Comments: Yeah, pitch 7 was the crux. Grade might be soft as I have big mitts. Likely 12a at most. Who knows, it was years ago and I never spent much time thinking about it (or caring for that matter). Blake found a different way to go, and maybe you will too. Go have some fun. It's a great route regardless of what number you paste onto it.

Comments: There is only 1 bolt with a hanger on top of P4. There is a stud next to it (maybe 3/8" wedge bolt?), but no nut or hanger next to it. Me, I'm not much a fan of single bolt raps. In general the raps/anchors could all use to be improved. Most just have two bolts with 1 biner each and are located just off the belay ledges which make for unnecessary hanging belays and very twisted ropes. It would be a good service for a future ascent to improve on this as the route is a worthy adventure.

Comments: A simple approach is go to Chicken Point and then head up a gully toward the route. Here are GPS directions. bp2.trimbleoutdoors.com/ViewTrip/1515945 (note: we had some backtracking due to getting cliffed out)
Rap Beta: use a 70M rope and rap from the higher anchor on the second rappel. 1st person raps down the corner to easily reach the anchors and ties the rope ends into the anchor. 2nd person raps straight down the steeper face and can be pulled into the anchors. The rope won't go anyw... more >>

Comments: Full Directions: From Sedona, head South on 89A, take a left onto 179 at the first roundabout. Take a right at Back O' Beyond rd (signed) after a couple of roundabouts. Go about a mile and park at the trail-head (you can't miss it). Pay the iron ranger for parking.
Hike up the Cathedral Spires Trail. You'll be following a line of tourists at most times. Make sure you head uphill toward the spires and don't get confused by the trails bisecting the route. Once at the Notch go left about 200'... more >>
