Description

Devotion of sacrifice; Blood over an alter of sand.

Blood Ceremony is one of Sedona's most beautiful and difficult splitters. Nasty sizes and a slight off-set lean makes this a challenging encounter in the realm of splitter cracks.

Leave the ground through drifting tips and into the business, punch through some relief and into the final boulder problem. Cruise up into fun and easier terrain.

Plea for an end before your veins run dry.

Location

Right side of Tempeh Wall. You'll know it when you see it.

I always found a bloody hand to be a textural advantage in the sand land. You guys are racking em up, and knocking em down. Apr 27, 2016

^^ Its all bags of sand man...

Blood Ceremony was a vicious battle for me personally. I found the sizing and the transitions to be very nasty and powerful. More attempts than any other sand line I can remember. All the cuzins made this thing happen.

Like any quality splitter crack the difficulty will depend on your hand size and how much tape you use, .11- or beyond. Pure sacrament shall stain your hands with blood!! Apr 26, 2016
