Comments: Nice fun line. Couple of wasps in the flake this last weekend. Crux bulge is somewhat sustained with about 4 slightly less than positive jugs. Crux bolt is a tough one to hang the draw on. Heroic finish.

Comments: Anchor biners not there again as of yesterday. Apparently most folks cant handle them so I didn't replace them. I think I have personally added at least 8 biners to this particular anchor. It's almost humorous at this point. However I will say that the chain will eventually wear thin if repeatedly lowered/rapped through, so either add some biners or top out and walk off. This will necessitate some trad gear for short pitch to the top, gardening tools, and shoes for the descent.

Comments: Cant wait to see what you think Blake! I couldn't hesitate to give this four stars, especially compared to all the other routes like this in the GNAR at the grade. Oh wait...

Comments: After over 10 years, this thing felt much harder than I remember and would be a great candidate for some serious re-bolting to make more sensible clips. Regardless, the price of admission is a burly move.

Comments: I'm with you JJ. A better approach road would add a star to the already 4 star routes. There will be haters who would not want better access. But this could be excellent for the NACC, FCC, and GNAR to rally with the appropriate channels to work on this.

Comments: Well bummer. Passed by 253G the other day and noticed a new "no motor vehicles" sticker on its sign post. I guess now its "official".

Comments: a great "welcome back to sedona" route. A few notes from our ascent yesterday. Great tshirt temps.
Good beta about stashing packs, leaving approach shoes at jungle belay etc.
As sands through the hour glass so will be below the clever access pitch.
P2 is pretty awesome, P3 is price of admission, but still fun and interesting, to the sweet 4th pitch wide hands pitch to a big sunny ledge.
The last pitch is wild and exposed. I fell into the temptation of climbing too much on the arete, offline of... more >>
