Description Suggest change

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.

Location Suggest change

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.

Protection Suggest change

2 each blue Alien to NEW #5 Camalot, a knife and webbing.
