Comments: Nice work guys! Cool to see ya on the sharp end. It's been twenty years already for me, does this route deserve a PG-13? This line would get climbed all the time if it were in a more popular area.

Comments: Copy that jbak. I think mentioning it in the route description the way you have seems fine to me. I did put it up for discussion with the other admins, but I think most of us don't see it as an issue. However, Nick and crew are constantly overhauling the site so you never know, it might pop up down the road. Thanks for your all your hard work.

Comments: I hear you Jon. I wonder if it's a shadow cast from deeper inside the cloud formation? Maybe the first seconds of a down pour? But any new ager in Sedona will tell you that's a feminine vortex of energy coming in for contact with earth.

Comments: We have had to delete numerous double posted routes for Lime Kiln Canyon recently. Please do a "search" before posting routes here to make sure it isn't already listed. Especially in the "Back Wall" area. Thank you.

Comments: This was a originally done as a trad route. I'm sure Bloom would know more. Haven't been on it since the retrobolt, but I remember the climbing being good. The gear maybe not so much.

Comments: Trying to clean these areas up a bit, so they will be more congruent with published guides. It will take a day for the route counts to adjust.

Comments: Don't start off the stump. Getting to the crimps is the hard part, but the toss to the lip isn't easy either. I think this was the hardest problem I ever sent at Groom Creek. We thought it was a bit harder than The Golf Ball.

Comments: This spot was all the rage circa Y2K. I never made the stop, but had heard good things. Colin Cox probably knows what history there is to know.

Comments: I don't think too many would people would argue with an .11+ grade, but then again no one has called sandbag either. At least to my knowledge. It's a demanding pitch at the given grade, and it does make you work for it.

Comments: It's hard... I know I played around on it when Eric was fired up on it. I couldn't use the EZ beta, but a big toss was in the mix either way. I think he lead this, and I may have belayed him. It's all a bit hazy unfortunately.

Comments: I remember you climbing the bulge and then finishing on what is now the direct finish. I should probably add you on the FA;)

Comments: The route was bolted to climb the bulge straight on, through a compression crux. I've never seen anyone climb that far left Pablo, however I have seen a lot of folks get shut down at the bulge. Its an improbable set of moves until you just do it, but that's the way I've seen other people climb the route.

Comments: Via Rich Ludwig

"Yeah, the continuation is called "A Cold Slap in the Face". I need to add a bolt right after the traverse at the beginning. I hung a long sling off the first bolt when I did it (the 2nd pitch). Actually, it is/was meant to be climbed as a single pitch. I called it 5.12c when done that way.
There is a bolted anchor at the top of the wall here, so it is possible to TR this thing, just be careful setting it up!"
