Location: Arizona : Northern Arizona : Flagstaff Crags : Pumphouse Wash : Lower Pumphouse Wash : the Wave - Unnamed 3 (5.10d)

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.

Comments: I agree with toast. The climbing is decent but this was put up ground up and so didn't get the cleaning it should have. Don't climb this while someone is at the base.

Comments: It is possible that the finger crack has been climbed before but we cleaned a good bit of stuff off. The upper section had a sketchy teeter-totter block on it and had not been climbed.

Comments: Nice write up Casey but I think that the description of the 1st pitch should be clarified. 90% of the pitch goes free at 10 or 11 with a fixed line to get up the first 30 feet, and then you may need to pull on some bolts in the middle of the pitch. Definitely try and climb as much of this pitch free as possible!

Comments: Awesome! Not sure if you are the guy I met in Potrero recently. Either way congrats. Hidden is now home to a place to learn how to top rope and 5.13+.

Comments: Only at the Waterfall would you get a half-dozen bolts followed by two loweball placements. Awesome! A great route.

Comments: A very good route. Sedona now has a holy trinity of must do big free routes. Great Dihedral, Into the Wild, and People's Republic of Vermont.

Pitch 3 is amazing.

Comments: How is a 16' problem rated X? It would be hard to die from 16'.
