Sedona's Scenic Cruise

How are the UTM coordinates 12S? If you plug them is as written it geocodes to somewhere in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Chile. It should be 12N. spatialreference.org/ref/epsg/...

Grand Canyon

Can you please rename this area "Grand Canyon National Park", so 1. It's less cryptic and 2. it comes up in searches for "grand canyon"? thanks

Evolution Traverse

I've msg'd about this before. It's pretty clear to me that whoever posted this page hasn't done this route. I see that it has been updated since my original message (likely from other people's beta).

Description (original)
The two most difficult parts that go up are going to Mt Mendel, and to Mt Huxley.(5.8,5.7).

Corrected
The most challenging section from both a technical and routefinding standpoint is the traverse between Darwin and 13,332. There's a obvious manky 5.6 downclimb right below the summit block. From here depending on which way you go you will encounter downclimbing/traversing up to 5.9. The Mendel headwall is 5.6. There are a number of ways to go up Huxley, but most people have encountered climbing up to 5.7 or 5.8.

thanks,
Michelle

Mt. Winchell

Description is incorrect in that it doesn't have the tiniest summit. Starlite's "milk bottle" summit comes to mind as among the smallest, if not the smallest. Getting There also omits the W Side approach, which is used for 2 of 3 routes posted (and the one I'm about to add).
