A sunny route on Submarine Rock. A bit spooky in spots.

Pitch 1: 5.10 80' A bit awkward in spots. Climb the right-slanting hands-ow crack until it pinches off. A poorly protected mantle (crux 1) gets you to an optional belay ledge. Traverse right to a finger crack and hump one of the worst dirt clods I have ever encountered in Sedona. If you get over it then climb the hand crack until forced out right (crux 2). Whew! Belay takes a very big piece, and fingers and nuts.

Pitch 2: 5.6 50' Climb gently to the top. Mostly easy, but most of the would-be gear is in crap rock, and most of the holds are suspect. Belay from a tree.

Descent: 1 130' rap off the west side.


Follow directions to the south face of Submarine Rock. This route is located about 50' right of the obvious bivy cave at the base of a right slanting crack.
