Me traversing at the end of P3 about to get into the Flying Alcove. The picture does not do this pitch justice. There's nothing but air for a long ways under me.

Comments: It's probably worth thinking about whether a 3 bolt one move wonder belongs in a beautiful place like Pumphouse wash.

Comments: One of the best routes in Sedona and certainly the best stone. Up there with Shangri-la and Southern Revival. Certainly committing but I found it to be well protected and generally accessible. Full-value and requires a full set of tools.

Comments: I do want route information. I want to know where a route is and its grade. MP users typically do not spray beta in the route information so that everyone can have a chance to try and onsight.

Comments: Please delete your comments. Your unsolicited beta takes away the possibility of on-sighting from everyone that scrolls through this route page.

Comments: An incredible route and certainly one of the best in Sedona. The summit register is full. If you are going to climb this please bring a rollable new register. The container is a tube so it needs to be able to be rolled up and placed in the tube.

Comments: Just for all you out of towners - this climb is most definitely not X rated. At all.

Comments: An excellent route. Sporty trad climbing at it's best.


Location: Nevada : Red Rock : Pine Creek Canyon : Mescalito : Risky Business (5.10c R)

Comments: Great route. Though I don't think that any of it is R except for maybe some 5.6 moves high on pitch 1. Solid lead falls are possible on the other pitches but the risk of injury is very unlikely.

5.10 PG-13 is what I would give this route. Overall not too bad at all.

Comments: The Dr. Topo link is broken. If anyone wants a copy of that guide message me here. Better yet, if someone has a place to upload it to, that would work best.

Comments: It is very, very unlikely that this was unclimbed until 2016. In the early 2000s pretty much everything in those main areas at 2nd had been climbed, especially in such a central location.

Comments: I agree with the slider beta. Not crucial, but certainly nice. Small nuts can be useful too depending on personal preference. What a route! It's hard not to spray about this thing but will keep my words limited to allow a fresh experience for others.
