More like 95ft - 60 meter rope barely covers anchors to ground. Knots in both ends recommended. Alt-start to the right takes away PG13 choss. Feb 11, 2018

Mike and Darren, I saw a guy pull out the first piton in early December when he went to clip. The alternate start on the right is fully bolted, safer, and doesn't take away from the meat and potatoes quality that is the upper 3/4 or the route. I recommend taking the bolts to the right nowadays. Feb 9, 2018

Choss start, excellent 5 start middle section, some choss @ finish buldge. I recommend going right over the last bulge, left side kicked off a head sized block that had been tested and weighted multiple times. Feb 5, 2018

It is currently a pretty good run to get to the first fixed pin and the second bolt, on less than ideal rock. There is currently only one fixed pin, and several empty bolt holes (3? I think) on the bottom portion of the route. If I was to do it again, i'd start on the bolts to the right and traverse in. Upper portion is well protected and quite fun. Jan 2, 2018

Next time I will start this route with the few bolts to the right of those silly pins. Great warm up Nov 16, 2015

Route is now fully bolted with the exception of a fixed pin. No need for any gear. Fun route, good anchors. Still sorta crumbly at the bottom.

New anchors are bomber. Thanks Dean!

Choss at the bottom is more than made up for in the upper climbing. Mar 16, 2010

Really fun and clean moves up the arete. It is a shame that the top is kind of chossy. I think that it felt like 11.a. But its still a great route. Feb 15, 2010

Fantastic route, great moves never too cruxy. Too bad that the anchor is nasty looking tat. Hope to put some chains on it next time I make it down. Really fun route. Not PG 13 with the pins. Feb 1, 2010

Route Update:

We also added an additional bolt on the arete, avoiding the ramp makes it now fun 5.10 to gain the sloping ledge under the roof.

THE CRUX SIDE-CLING AT THE ROOF BROKE OFF, LEAVING A NICE EDGE, BUT A BIT EASIER. SEEMS TO BE 5.11B NOW Dec 14, 2008

I added 3 fixed pins to the start of this route last winter. It is now well protected, and should clean up nicely now that the start of the route is established. No longer a PG route. Jun 30, 2008

There is now (again?) a direct start, passing a couple pins to get to the bolts. The direct version is IMO a better and more natural line. Also, this protects well and IMO does not deserve a PG rating, especially in Sedona. Jan 27, 2008
