Kindest Cut 5.12b 7b 26 VIII+ 26 E5 6b  AZ : Northern Arizona : ... : Main Wall
Pull off the ground and encounter the crux, a shouldery move moving from one gaston to the next. Make a few more tricky moves to to a few nice jugs and a resting hole. Rest well as the rest of the route is sustained and tricky on small holds. Pull the final redpoint crux just below the final bolt and a nice resting ledge.Also didn't encounter any chipped holds on this one (that I saw anyways) and the grade seemed to be solid....[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ

FYI, the ground is currently about 6+ foot higher under the routes Bone Crusher, Zone of Exclusion, Son of Fury, Sandman, and Serpentine due to the post fire flooding and subsequent settlement of the ash, dirt, etc.

Some of the first bolts are at chest level now.
