Description

Sweet handjams and liebacks in a left facing corner. Most climbers will lieback this route, but I found that it is very secure to jam it straight on.

This is certainly one of the cleanest corners in all of Sedona.

Location

This route is located on the far left end of the Church Wall. It may be 150-200 yards left of Genesis. During the approach a short 4th Class traversing move must be negotiated before arriving at the base. The route does not come into view until you are almost under it.

The route ascends a large left facing corner split by a sweet hand crack.

We didn't find this one first time up there. When you think you have gone too far left along the wall keep going. Make the exposed step and scramble up a slab and the route is just ahead. You can scope the line from the trail before heading up the wash. Dec 31, 2014

A little taste of the creek. There it would be 2 stars, or one. Here, if you like hand size splitters, it's 4. Feb 19, 2012
