Comments: DESCENT BETA (march 2015): Once you top out, the Bolts are 25 feet to the North (north as in the direction of Up Oak Creek Canyon towards flagstaff). 190 foot rap gets you to the next set of chains. One more clean rap to the Ground. 30 seconds to get you packs. Easy.

Comments: Take note that the book warns many climbers do not climb the correct ridge. The direct south ridge lies south of the col and does not connect to the col. If you find yourself climbing the wrong ridge (the one connected to the col) and it dead ends, don't worry. From there traverse the whole mountain on 3rd and 4th class ledges to the west. This way you will pass below the head wall in the south ridge. Or continue traversing generally west and up until you can see the Grand Teton. From there it's... more >>

Comments: Bring some webbing and a knife to shore up the rap stations, especially rapping down to the east prong col as of late September 2014. It looks as though a marmot has chewed through most of the station.

Comments: If you are looking for a fun link up you can climb Coyote Tower and then walk over to Oak Creek Spire. The walk takes about an hour from base to base. It is a little route findy but there are plenty of washes and random trails to follow. Even a faint trail going up the saddle of oak spire on the southside. This day makes for about ten pitches averaging five nine, two pitches of 5.8 plus to keep you on your toes and two classic sedona jumps in one day of climbing.

Location: Arizona : Northern Arizona : Flagstaff Crags : Oak Creek Canyon Overlook : Griffo (5.7)

Comments: If you scrable up just to the right of Griffo about 20ft there will be a small square ledge on a pedestal with some Graffitti on the wall.

In this corner is some nice Off-width climbing that takes a four pretty well. You climb this corner for about 20-30 feet and then traverse back left to Griffo. Its good fun, fist jams, or for my little hands elbows.

If I had to guess at the rating maybe 5.8?

I dont know why it isnt posted on Mountain project. I will look at the Cheap Way to Fly book to se... more >>

Comments: Great begginer climb. The pitches are short but have challenges, the ledges are huge, and the summit is great.

That said dont expect much climbing on this route.

I recomend the pitch 2 variation up the corner to avoid the OW. Its more fun. I would disagree about it being 5.7+ maybe a little harder. But if you can climb 5.7 just sew it up and go for it. Its the only move on the pitch so you can use a ton of gear to protect it.

If you take the second pitch variation a single set of cams from ... more >>

Comments: There was nothing really special about this route other than four easy and fun pitches. The absense of bolts made building anchors more fun as well as allowed the leader the option of going off route. As for the runouts I didnt find them to be too bad and I dont think a 5.7 leader would have any probelm with them.

Comments: I have the Brock/Mcmillen guidebook and the pitch lengths dont match up to the ones listed on mountain project. For example, the forth pitch according to my book is 160 feet while project says it is only 90 feet. Has everone one found mountain project descriptions to be accurate?

Comments: Has anyone climbed to the true summit past the forth pitch anchors?
