Comments: rapchopper: I am confused by your comments. Are you referring to another comment that was deleted or to the route description? I haven't been at Wall Street for awhile, but I imagine this route has steel rings on either chains or webbing, and of course should not be used for toproping by large parties. Place your own draws.

Comments: Stewart, it's possible you are referring to another Cutler outcrop between 313 and town where cracks are slightly more prominent. There are documented ascents by Jimmy on that formation. However, it is highly likely you, Jimmy, and several others may have climbed here over the years without leaving any signs behind.

Comments: Not the best climb around Sedona by any means, but still beautiful, fun and adventurous. Seems pretty silly for the rap anchor up top to be placed where it is when it would be much, much easier and safer to get to somewhere else. The tower is short enough that you could still do 2 single rope rappels from the upper summit if the rap station had been placed up there.

Comments: It's hard to rate this 4 stars when you also rate something like the Scenic Cruise 4 stars, but I have to remind myself it's relative. This route gets 4 stars for the Overlook - but that's it.

Comments: Fun climbing and unique route. I award stars on this one for the interesting moves and wild exit from the upper chimney/slot, but much of the route is only two stars.

Comments: I liked it. Not really 10a is it?? Seemed harder than the 5.8 the book rated it though.

Comments: I know the crux is short and low on the route, but it might as well be called 10a.

Comments: Old school 5.9 that feels like 10a, but NOT runout.

Comments: Fun climb, especially the start to the ledge. The TR version of the 11c face under the anchor is quite fun and sustained, and I can definitely relate to Salamanizer's comments on leading it. The move getting started towards the bottom felt harder than 11c.

Comments: Tough climbing moves, but the real crux is placing gear in between moves. Definitely eases significantly up higher, as you can stay on your feet more.

Comments: Good start through clean rock, but the upper two thirds was not very good in my opinion. The upper half consisted of lackluster laybacking with less than desirable gear - neither very fun to protect or really that interesting to climb compared to other routes.

Comments: I was glad to find that the anchor now resides at the very top of the dihedral, as it should be. Not to be missed at this wall. Compared to most 10a crack climbing up and down the East Side of the Sierras, this is pretty spot on.

Comments: Amazing that this line ends up going with almost all gear - it's beautiful. Great climbing, and is now one of my personal favorites anywhere. If so desired, the easy climbing to that first bolt on the upper face CAN be protected with a smaller 0.5-0.75" cam and by slinging a knob if desired. After placing this pro you simply climb right and then left up the ramp, or go straight up the much harder climbing in the little dish. Two ropes to get down, or a 70m with an easy 5th class downclimb.

Comments: Very very hard crux that I could only end up getting on toprope - 12b/c??. The lead is solid 10 if you pull through the crux. I think the rock is excellent and the climbing fun, but I don't think I would call it runout (possibly PG13). Very beautiful setting and beautiful piece of rock.

Comments: Not very memorable, as a lot of the climbing is not very remarkable or distinguishable - and there are a myriad of climbing options, amounting to a very wandering route by which many paths will go at or near the 5.7 grade. The rock is mostly good, however, and the crack on P1 is fun and likely well remembered. Mostly just easier slab climbing. Probably a great learning experience for those beginning to place gear more confidently. The "5.8" start felt like 5.7.

Comments: To Lou and Todd from the May postings: To expand on the topic, I think the OLD BD #5 would likely work as it was larger, but the new BD #5 C4 would not work as it is smaller. A #5 friend does not fit, but #6 friend would.

Comments: First bolt very contrived (and difficult) - i.e. not the natural line at all. Good climbing on face above with one slightly wandering section.

(Sideways lunge not necessary.)

Comments: I have looked at this line before, wondering if it had been done. Would have been sweet if it went to the rim with no intermediate anchor.
