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.


Hike downstream to the first bouldering area and cross Oak Creek. Stuff Shootin is on the backside of the large boulder directly across the creek.


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!

This was a really really excellent boulder problem. Quality rock and awesome movement

I hiked out by myself with only two pads, more pads would have been good or a spotter. Also approach description from the parking area was a bit difficult. I had to go much farther down the canyon than expected, and the trail isn't very obvious (or when to cross the river), trail continues up on a 10 ft high portion of the canyon wall to get around the water. I finally found the boulder problem directly across from the suspended roof boulder that the trail passes. Mar 19, 2018

WLevandowski, glad you found and enjoyed this very classic boulder. It seems my directions have confused multiple suitors at this point. I’ve updated the sub-description here to clarify the directions listed on the section page. Thanks Mar 19, 2018

I must say that this is a damn good name for a boulder problem. Mar 19, 2018
