Description

Difficult compression bouldering on a gorgeous bit of rock. Begin perched at a sloper and a right-facing rail. Climb straight up past flat sidepulls and a discouraging sloper. Maybe the best boulder in Sedona.

Location

On the overhanging backside of the large boulder immediately across the creek. Takes the obvious left line.

Protection

Two pads will suffice, three or four would be ideal. Not horribly tall, but falling while topping out could be dangerous.

A high left perch on a thin foot, and a left knee scum-bar on the starting hold below your left hand (<--HaHa, something like that) makes that irritating (or awesome?) first move substantially easier. A cruel twist of fate makes this sequence much harder for tall folks, but since their lanky appendages tend to help them more often than not I don't feel too bad. One of the best problems in NAZ!
