Comments: Don't miss the sinker holds off to the right of the first bolt and in the crack above the first bolt to aid in the traverse to the second bolt.

Comments: I think it probably goes 5.12, but I can't be certain as it felt very hard as I am out of shape. Feel free to grade differently.

Comments: Fun route. Since getting so much traffic, I think the rating is about 4+ these days.

Comments: The climb has seen more ascents this season than in the last 30 years put together and is subsequently cleaning up and becoming safer. It's also spreading the increase in climbers out between more routes, causing a higher chance for parties to get on something rather than mostly getting shut down if The Ribbon or BBB is occupied. Bolted anchors like those on The Ribbon help people get off routes fast also allowing multiple parties to climb the routes on the same day. The problem is the ever i... more >>

Comments: That clove hitch on the silent partner is upside down. This is a very important detail not to overlook. Also for safety, those lockers should be facing each other rather than both cliped in the same direction.

Comments: Two full raps with a single 70m rope. First anchor on left on small tree. Second anchor on a juniper shrub on the left about 8m above the pillar.

Comments: Why isn't the Darkside on here? If the locals don't want it posted okay, but if there is no objection then I'll put it up. Sound off.

Comments: It should say something like after crossing the Berg, ascend the snowfilled couloir on the climber's left side of Barrill (the Japanese couloir). Once at the top of the coulouir, traverse the snow field directly in front of you to the climbers left for 100M. Intermittent rock protection can be found where the snow has receeded from the rock band above. This could be the crux depending on the snow conditions at the top out of the couloir. After the 100M traverse, continue up the second couloi... more >>

Comments: This felt a little more balance-y moving from the crack over to the right onto the arete as compared to Redman Soars. I'd put it at an easy M6.

Comments: There is one more route between Stabbing the Cat and Shallow Hal. Four bolts. 5.9. This is another fun one. Really fun wall with excellent rock, belay stances and scenery.

Comments: Jump off of the Berry ATV trail after about 150 feet onto a footpath on the right. It's a nice trail down the ridgeline. Somebody put nice cairns all the way to the vertical wall. It helps funnel traffic on a trail and keeps people from getting lost. Thanks.

This area is great.

Comments: This route is harder than the one to its left "Odale". I'd say B on this one and A on Odale.

Comments: If you only have a few days to climb, make sure you go to the unamed wall. Its by far the best way to get a lot of climbing in. The rest of the climbs are spread out all over the place. On second thought, go to Cody.

Comments: What is the best place in/near Sedona for cragging? We will have party members that are straight off the couch, so the location with the easiest ratings would be best.

Comments: Did anybody figure out what is up with the knot? There is even a locker cliped into the far overhand knot. What the heck?

Comments: Good route. Much cleaner than Eureka Pillar. This would have some spicy moves for 5.7; I'd grade those moves at 5.9 as well. I hate slabs though. I'd leave the doubles at home. Easy 30m raps with a single 60m rope. You would still have to make 2 raps with doubles, so saving one single rap is not worth dragging another rope up there. Not as dirty as everyone says. However, with any alpine-like climb, be a good steward and help clean the route. Car to car took us 2 hours. Did t... more >>

Comments: Definitely 5 pitches, not 4. Bring a single 70m rope. We climbed this today with a single 60m rope and we ended up downclimbing in 3 different places. Double 60m ropes will not allow you to double rap pitches, so leave the doubles at home or you'll end up making 5 rappels anyway. A single 70m rope is the way to go. Car to car took us 3 hours. My opinion, it's a grade II climb. Great bolt job whomever drilled it. Do NOT stop at the chains on the ledge after the 4th pitch (these are rap a... more >>

Comments: Purposefully pulled some loose blocks down on this over the weekend. If you know a rock is loose and you are confident there is nobody below, do not wait to remove loose material on a route. A couple of the blocks were ticking time bombs and should have been pulled long ago. Good route.
