DescriptionThis is an astonishing route that if found anywhere else would be the "it" route to do...Well maybe just the second pitch, a ridiculous overhanging splitter that seems too good to be true!
Pitch 1 (5.11+): Ramble a few feet up through the choss to a pedestal clip a bolt and proceed to do a classic Sedona "approach" pitch. (loose rock, choss, sand) The last 10 -15 feet after passing the last bolt are actually quite fun and thought provoking with better quality rock. This will place you on a nice ledge with what you came for looming above. One Star.
Pitch 2 (5.13): Crawl up into the obvious pod above and prepare for the never ending pump fest! The crack after the pod starts as thin hands and gradually tapers down through the sizes; #1s, .75s, .5s, .4s, .3s, and ends with two protection bolts. There is no really hard move just a lot of not so easy ones. The entire pitch is greatly varied with the sizes and angles, making it incredibly fun and interesting. The jams and locks are good but the overhanging nature makes you want to move fast and efficiently and the ending layback section is stimulating and keeps your head on a swivel. An intense 5 star pitch!
