Comments: As far as I know I went straight up through the shallow crack and it seemed like 10+ at the most. Not hard, just a little heady- Um, I think I was on Redline

Comments: Yep, 12b for sure. Just did it today for the first time. I thought it was a tough onsight as there is so much chalk on it! I didn't know whether to got left or straight up after the 2nd bolt!

Comments: For sure! When I posted these climbs I hadn't been on a lot of them, I just took the info from a guide, which was obviously wrong on a lot of accounts. Nice route though.

Comments: Great route! I felt like the 3rd pitch was the crux though. Pulling through the little bulge with only the offwidth crack and no holds was quite exciting for me. Then I ran out of gear and had to run it out to the anchors from there- don't place all your big pieces before the bulge!

I felt the first pitch was about 5.9 (Sedona 5.8), no harder, but could seem harder if there was no chalk.

Comments: Definatly not the same as it was 10 years ago- the start jug broke about 3 years ago making the start much more difficult and even more necessary to stick that first bolt. I didn't feel that long draws were needed on the 3rd or 4th bolt for rope drag, but if you're worried about it, it's pretty easy for normal sized people to reach down and unclip the 3rd after clipping the 4th.

Comments: It might have got a bit harder since I broke a hold- sorry! It wasn't at the crux, though....

Comments: It feels harder if you're shorter, as that one move near the bottom is a big one.

Comments: I found the best way to get there was from the La Sal loop road south of town, off of HWY 191. Follow this until you reach a sharp hairpin turn (about 15 miles) with a cattle guard. Go 0.4 miles from the gate and look for wooden road reinforcements on the right. (If you reach the bridge, you've gone too far) The trail starts on the left of the road just opposite the road reinforcements (by a large pine tree). As you are hiking, take the left fork to get to the wicked crag. When you get to a... more >>

Comments: Okay, I'm a pretty good sport climber (mid 12s) but my trad is a bit rusty. If I layback the split pillar pitch, can I pull onto rests to place gear, or will I just be screwed? Any ideas of which pitches would be best for me to lead? Any pitches have more face relief than others? Thanks for any beta.

Comments: Hi-
Just wondering how much sun the various areas get? Is it climbable now with this hot weather? Thanks...

Comments: Sure, why not? He's a bad-ass crack climber, but those things are way nicer and easier to use than tape.

Comments: It's definately not a gimmie if you're 5 foot tall and you stick to the bolt line. Since I'm too much of a weenie to go way off left into 49 (I hate being too far to the side of the bolts), I use the little crimpers and it feels 12d.

Comments: Okay, more gear beta to mull over... I brought 2 sets of camalots up to #3 with 6 #1s. I didn't place the #3s at all- waste of weight damn it! I placed 5 #1s on the 4th pitch and was happy to have them. I'm not sure where everyone was placing all those green camalots since the red ones seemed to fit nicely.

And, being 5 foot tall, I don't think the crux on the 3rd pitch is easier for short people. It's actually quite a reach to that gaston flake and the feet are way low! But totally doa... more >>

Comments: Personally, I think the technical crux comes at the top when it turns into an offwidth after lovely thin hands crack climbing and laybacking. They should have put the anchors about 10 feet lower!

Comments: This was my favorite climb at IC. So much fun and great bouldery moves. I made it super exciting by not bringing enough small cams.

Comments: Definately just bring one rope and do the single rope descent. Supertopo does have the description nailed and I posted a pic of the "cool little arch" you climb through right before you head left and downclimb the chimney (which was wet when we did it on April 2). On the 3rd pitch after the 4th class section, make sure you don't place all of your small gear before the bolt! You'll need some to get up that dihedral!

Also, if the forecast says 15-20 mph winds in town, expect them to be 60mph u... more >>

Comments: Relatively easy climbing to about 3/4 of the way up where there's a long reach involving a chipped hold. This route is on the left arete of the White Wall.

Comments: Such an amazing line! One of the cleanest cracks in Sedona, but I still pulled a giant block off, so wear your helmet!
